Shattered – A new play by Lisa Nicoll, directed by Jordan Blackwood. Inspired by bereaved families across Scotland.
Friday 8th June 3pm – 5pm
Delegates wanting to attend should meet by 2.30 pm in room 3 of the TIC building.
The conference will also welcome playwright, Lisa Nicoll, who will perform her new play, Shattered, as part of the social programme. Taking place at the Drygate, Shattered looks at the themes of grief, loss and isolation and how these affect relationships. This form of engagement with delegates will cascade information in a creative way, encouraging families to share and discuss their own experiences.
The theatre is a short walk from the venue and you will be escorted there. The play will begin at 3 pm. Late arrivals will not be admitted. Show running time 1 hour and 15 minutes. A Q&A session will follow the show to allow you to meet and ask questions of the playwright, director, and cast.
You can look at the theatre company's website at www.inmotion.co.uk/shattered and view a trailer for the play at https://vimeo.com/263113266
Shattered is touring Scotland, its first performance having been at Paisley Arts Centre, on Saturday, May 19.
Inspired by interviews and life experiences, Shattered deals with the universal themes of grief, loss, and isolation as well as the things that are left unsaid between the people to whom we are sometimes the closest.
The play is a partnership between In Motion Theatre Company and the Scottish Cot Death Trust
