Some Home Library Service members were the guests at a dress rehearsal at Church Street Library last week of Impro for Elders, before their actual performances this week (tonight and tomorrow!) at the Cockpit Theatre. Impro for Elders is directed by the award winning Improbable Theatre and funded by Arts Council England and Create Church Street.
The improvisation performances by local people who had been meeting for only a few weeks were emotional, funny and imaginative. The HLS members were able to provide valuable feedback to the performers, which hopefully will add to their performances!
Everyone enjoyed the opportunity to attend a local cultural theatrical event:
“I was moved by the stories and enjoyed the humour”
“If I had been younger and more steady on my feet this is something I would have really enjoyed participating in”
