GLASGOW BLACK COMEDY DRAMA WORKSHOPS
Black comedy workshops at Glasgow’s Platform Theatre, The Bridge, Easterhouse.
Trojan Women Scotland CIC and Platform Easterhouse have been running fortnightly creative drama acting and writing workshops for Syrians in Glasgow, in association with Refuweegee and Glasgow City Council.
The workshops have been taking place every other Saturday from 11AM - 2PM.
Platform at the Bridge, Easterhouse, 1000 Westerhouse road, G34 9JW
In the weekly workshops, lead by our Syrian participants, we use drama, games, movement, writing, discussion, and art to explore the themes of exile, refuge, home and war, and to mine the deep tragic-comic nature of the human condition. The workshops are lead by the young comedy writer and director Faith Beach.
We are working towards a performance at Platform in 2021.
Trojan Women Project is building on its highly acclaimed 2019 production of The Trojans, an adaptation of the Trojan Women, with a Glasgow-based cast of Syrian refugees. We are delighted to create a new course and production in Glasgow
Platform at The Bridge in Easterhouse will be hosting these drama workshops, who have a great track record of community based arts initiatives and projects, with state of the art equipment. See:
There are fantastic crèche facilities for children in term time and the school holidays with activities including kids’ drama and music projects at Platform Easterhouse. A hot, Syrian lunch is also provided.
