Talkfest Perth Presents
And Another Thing..In Her Own Words 2
By Lesley Wilson
Directed by Lu Kemp
When an old person dies, a library burns to the ground. African Proverb
And Another Thing…In Her Own Words 2 is the second in a series of verbatim theatre pieces developed from Rivendell Care home residents' stories by playwright, Lesley Wilson, who is the writer in residence at Rivendell and Associate Artist at Perth Theatre.
Travelling across time and place, from the shadow of the first world war to the confusion of Brexit, it weaves a tale of love and loss, of childhood and family and of growing up and growing old.
Join the residents of Rivendell, their families and friends and discover this hidden library of delightful treasures, which will be performed by Janet Michael and Anna Hepburn.
Lesley Wilson worked for many years as a social worker and counsellor before she began writing for theatre in 2008. She lives in Perthshire and, in addition to playwriting, works as a writer in a local care home and supports artists to explore what supports and sabotages creativity. Theatre credits include Wired; In Her Own Words; A Woman, A Crown, A Giant and A Field.
