Breakwater Theatre Company is a new writing company based in Cleethorpes. They were due to perform Angel by Henry Naylor on Friday 17th April 2020 however, the production has had to be postponed due to the current Coronavirus situation. Instead of bringing a live theatre performance to the stage, they have decided to offer a creative challenge to others in the sector who may suddenly find themselves resting.
This challenge can and should be completed whilst social distancing or in self-isolation, though they encourage online collaboration between artists if that works. They want you to create a video of a brand-new monologue for their challenge.
Like everyone else, they have no income coming in, but hate to ask people to work for free. There is no entry fee. They cannot pay everyone who enters but can offer a prize of £100 for the winning entry. Its really more about giving a voice to your creative side in the current climate. The winner will be announced on the date we would have staged Angel – Friday April 17th 2020.
