Response 2 Power



What is our understanding of Power? What does it mean today? Response is an evening of monologues presented by Blink. Theatre. This December, the second instalment of this event - a response to the theme of POWER - takes to the Old Red Lion stage. Directed by Lotte Ruth Johnson, Response 2 Power showcases six speeches by emerging writers - combined to create a singular theatrical performance. POWER can mean a number of different things to different people. While a remarkably current topic - it is precisely this multiplicity which Blink. believes makes it a fertile theme for new writing. At a time when our definitions of the word might be changing for good, we can think of no better way to address this topic than on stage in front of a live audience. Response puts a focus on nurturing emerging writers and actors from all backgrounds - and splitting profits fairly between those involved. Each creative voice and interpretation of the theme is unique - making for an irreplaceable night of new theatre that you won't want to miss. This event returns after sold-out runs at Alyth Synagogue and the Courtyard and Old Red Lion theatres in early 2017.
