EIGHT: fresh new plays from first-time writers

Thanks to the continued support of the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation, Sherman Theatre’s Introduction to Playwriting course for 15 – 18 year olds has been able to continue throughout lockdown and as it eases. The participants have created eight monologues that are personal reflections on the experience of 2020 and the situation caused by Covid-19.

The plays in EIGHT were written and directed through weekly Zoom meetings facilitated by Branwen Davies, Matt Hartley, Timothy Howe and Non Haf Davies. All plays were self-filmed by the actors involved.

Gwyn Thomas Q&A

Why did you write about your subject matter?

• “I would say the idea came from the concept that someone could do something so horrible that ends up holding something beautiful that can carry one for hundreds of years.”


What did you enjoy about the process?

• “I enjoyed delving into what kind of ways a person can rationalise awful behaviour, and that for many people those reasons can make sense.”

Branwen Davies

“I’m delighted by the ideas, imagination and images created. It’s exciting to be able to celebrate our young writers and their work.”
