Playwrights Studio Scotland: Letters to… a Woman Who Brings Me Hope in the Dark

For their first edition of Letters to… Stellar Quines are celebrating our support of the Scottish Drama Training Network’s upcoming Fringe production Propeller, by The Network Ensemble, directed by Caitlin Skinner.

Propeller  is a devised piece looking at political activism and the things ordinary people can do to bring about social change. Inspired in part by Rebecca Solnit’s book  Hope In the Dark it got us thinking about the many women who have done inspirational work to resist oppression.

There are women with an international profile like Rosa Parks  or Malala Yousafzai.

There are also women working to change policy and laws at national or local level like the team at Glasgow Womens’ Library.

And there are the women you might know personally who maybe have zero profile, but whose actions have brought about small but very real changes for you or people you know.

This is your opportunity to tell Stellar Quines about an activist who gives you the energy and determination to keep on going, whatever your struggle is and however they encourage you.

What do I have to do?

  • Write a letter to a woman whose activism brings you hope. She could be someone from history, someone you know personally, or someone you’ve made up.
  • Write a letter designed to be read aloud, by a single performer.

Read more about what they are looking for and how to apply here. 

Deadline: 28 June 2018
