The Admiral’s Tea Party

The Admiral’s Tea Party

We are excited about Wordsmithery’s commission from Medway’s new Paint The Town Festival.

The Admiral’s Tea Party is a new site specific performance which will take its inspiration from aspects of Chatham’s heritage, commissioned for the Paint The Town Festival.

Did you know that the Admiral of the Fleet (head honcho of the British navy) used to have a residence in the Lower Lines Park in Gillingham, Kent? And that he used to organise fabulous tea parties on the lawn there?

Taking our inspiration from this fact, and from the nautical history of the area, we will be creating a new show to be performed at the Lower Lines Park on 24 June. We want stories and writing from local people to be part of the show! Playwright Sam Hall will be leading some creative writing workshops to help create the final piece.

WORKSHOPS:

The first workshop will be held on Saturday 22nd April 2017 from 1- 3pm at Nucleus Arts Centre. Book here.

There is also a second workshop on Wednesday 26 April, 2-5pm at the Brook Theatre. Book here.

ACTORS NEEDED!

Join our Community Cast for our outdoor theatre performance exploring the history of Gillingham’s Lower Lines Park. The site specific show will be performed on the afternoon of Saturday 24 June. We currently need actors to be part of this exciting new production. Workshops dates to be confirmed, but if you are interested, please email us for further info.
