THE COVID-19 MONOLOGUES
by Rachael Halliwell, Chris Dance, Paul Herzberg, Mike Elliston & Hamza Rafique

Five new writers, five great actors, five new plays, all specially commissioned and produced by Elysium TC:

ONE OF A KIND by Rachael Halliwell, performed by Sarah Boulter: a local reporter goes undercover in a care home to be close to her father.

PUSH YOURSELF, SLIGHTLY by Chris Dance, performed by Amy Gavin: meet Diane, wellness consultant and demotivational speaker, who will help you realise your dreams.

THE MOTH by Paul Herzberg, performed by Victor Power: a chance encounter on a train in 1994 between a black British man and a white South African soldier leaves a long shadow nearly three decades later.

SUGAR by Mike Elliston, performed by Edmund Dehn: Bristol, 1721, the Reverend Harcourt is given the task of writing the sermon for the funeral of famous philanthropist and notorious slave trader Sir Edward Colston.

THE ART OF BEING A SOLUTION by Hamza Rafique, performed by Shobna Gulati: Preeya, Government Advisor and so-called 'racial gatekeeper', sits her child carer, Deborah, down for good speaking to.

All directed by Jake Murray and filmed and produced by Andrew Glassford...
