Our response to the impact of Covid-19 on our live theatre productions has been to create the Riversmeet Monologues. A series of very short films inspired by monologues from our original play scripts.
The first, below is from Rebels in Heaven. This play should have taken place on May 12 - 16, 2020, at Bread and Roses, Clapham has obviously been postponed. On what would have been the last night the original cast performed a reading of the script using Zoom.
Coming soon - Lynton
Riversmeet Monologues II: My Intentions, which is from the play Rebels in Heaven.
Oliver Cromwell is played by Costa Chard.
Riversmeet Monologues I: Liberty for All, the original promo for Rebels in Heaven.
John Lilburne is played by Charlie Coldfield.
The story of poet and radical essayist Percy Shelley’s brief period living on the North Devon coast. While he was living these he was the subject of intense surveillance by the state: his post was opened, and spies were employed to watch his movements and activities. The plays connect the story of Shelley’s days in Lynton to our present fears and worries about the encroaching loss of privacy today.
