Tiny Telephone Plays with Queen’s Theatre Hornchurch

Throughout summer 2020 Queen’s Theatre Hornchurch ran a highly successful online initiative called Ten Tiny Plays. They invited members of the public to explore play-making exercises with local theatre director Jules Tipton.

On Wednesday January 27, the Theatre will reimagine these free playmaking workshops delivered by telephone, especially for people with limited or no digital access.

Participants can join Jules Tipton on a group phone call every Wednesday afternoon for a playful introduction to some easy storytelling activities designed to help unleash their creativity. No experience is necessary, and the project is open to everyone!

Queen’s Theatre Hornchurch will choose some of the Tiny Plays created in these workshops to be rehearsed and performed by professional actors. These plays will then be shared back as a brand-new telephone play.

Queen’s Theatre Hornchurch has partnered on Tiny Telephone Plays with the Havering Asian Social Welfare Association (HASWA) and DABD. This is a continuation of their existing partnership work to support older and isolated individuals who would most benefit from the opportunities.
