Under Us All, a new one-man theatre production, presents the testimonies of three generations of a Tyneside Irish family. A grandfather, father and son discuss how industry, family, work and community have changed over the decades. Their stories show how attitudes have shifted from one generation to the next.
The piece arose from detailed interviews with a family from Hebburn. The audience witnesses the action whilst being an integral part of the set, as they are given a window into the intriguing everyday lives of a North East family.
Come along to a workshop led by theatre makers Cap-a-Pie and find out how you can make your stories into a piece of theatre.
Everyone will be encouraged to share experiences and stories, then, working with each other and Cap-a-Pie, we’ll make these into performances.
We’ll also have Michael Richardson on hand from Newcastle University who’ll help us understand why social scientists are interested in these kinds of stories and why they think it’s valuable to collect and study them. Don’t worry we’ve made sure he’s left his tape recorder at home for the night!
The workshop will take place before or after Under Us All, a new piece of theatre made by Cap-a-Pie and inspired by Michael Richardson’s research. We’ve made sure there’s enough time to have a drink and bite to eat between the show and workshop.
06/11/2013, 5pm-6.30pm – Newbiggin Maritime Centre, Box Office – 01670 811 951.
Cap-a-Pie in partnership with Newbiggin by the Sea Genealogy Project present an opportunity to explore how performance can be used to explore family stories. If you’d like to attend please bring along a family photo that you are happy the briefly talk about to others. There will also be a post show discussion at Newbiggin where everyone can share their thoughts on the whole day.
