Online Q&A With Writer & Performer Ruth Mitchell
Wednesday March 3rd @ 1pm & 7pm
Invisible Other is a project and performance that will share the stories of women who are under-represented in both media and performance as they age.
During lockdown, Ruth Mitchell who has performed both Coffee with Vera and The Secret Listener at the Old Library, has been working with three Plymouth organisations:
-Plymouth & Devon Racial Equality Council
-Sunflower Women’s Centre
Through the help of these organisations, Ruth has gathered a series of stories from a diverse group of women aged 45-65. These women, and a group of younger women (20-25), have been integral to Ruth’s work to research and develop a script for a new show, Invisible Other. The show, premiering at the Theatre Royal Plymouth and touring to the Old Library later in 2021, will celebrate and honour their unique life experiences.
As part of Ruth’s development of the show, and due to her close association with intoBodmin, we have an unusual opportunity for you to join Ruth for a 1-hour Q&A session on Wednesday March 3rd at 1pm or 7pm.
The Q&A will be a unique opportunity to glimpse inside Ruth’s process to research and make a new show. It will also be an opportunity to share your experience of watching a short film about the project and listening to a collection of audio files from some of the women who have been interviewed. Women of any age are welcome, Ruth is particularly interested if women aged between 45-65 are interested in joining a session.
Although this will be an opportunity to ask questions of Ruth, she will also be interested to hear your feedback and thoughts about her plans to interview a group of women a few weeks before a performance at a tour venue such as the Old Library. With the intention of incorporating a local woman’s story into the show, and to also create a mini-podcast to celebrate the stories from each local group of women.
Q&A will take place on Zoom on Wednesday March 3rd at 1pm & 7pm.
Tickets are free.
Numbers limited please book in advance.
