Panel Event with Unsung Collective
4 Nov 2020 1pm
Leeds based Unsung Collective create theatre that tells the stories of unsung women from history and myth, as well as those whose stories are currently unfolding. After their critically acclaimed 2019 UK Tour, their inaugural production Unsung was set to return to the stage in 2020. In response to Covid 19, the show was adapted into a Radio Play, produced entirely in Lockdown. It takes as its subject four inspirational women from our past, and interrogates why their achievements have been relegated to the footnotes of history.
Join the team behind Unsung for a discussion about how they chose the women featured in the play, why it is important to share women's untold stories, and their own experiences of being women working in the arts world.
Alice Barber (Creative Producer) – Associate Producer at Red Ladder Theatre Company and Creative Producer at Front Room Productions alongside running Unsung Collective.
Elvi Piper (Director) – Artistic Director of family theatre company Wrongsemble. Also freelance director and facilitator for some of the country’s most prolific producing theatres.
Lisa Holdsworth (Writer) – Award winning writer from Leeds. She has written for many TV shows including ‘Ackley Bridge’, ‘Call the Midwife’ and ‘Midsomer Murders’. She is also the Chair of the Writers’ Guild.
