ENSEMBLE is a theatrical experiment about theatre. About theatre as something we make together and the reasons why a society does that. It’s also about the social experiment that took place in East Germany between 1945 and 1990 – the attempt to make a new kind of country and what became of it. How did theatre practitioners feel about living in a society made of lies, a society built on fear, a society under total surveillance? And what do we think about the past now, when that past was all about the idea and the promise of the future?
Join us for a rehearsed reading of Peter’s draft script at Òran Mór (top of Byres Road, Glasgow) on Wednesday 15 April 2015 at 7.30 pm. This reading is itself very much an experiment, as it will follow on directly from a two-day script development workshop. So although we have a draft script ready and waiting to be printed now, it’s bound to change before the reading in ways that we can’t predict. And it will change further in response to audience reactions, so we are keen to have a lively and opinionated audience!
