One Year of One Voice


One Voice is a series of monologues specially commissioned by The Old Vic and funded by the TS Eliot Estate, with one-off performances from renowned actors. It celebrates the rawest of theatre forms – a single voice on a stage without scenery, without costume and with nothing to rely on but words.

To celebrate the first anniversary of these unique performances, we’re pleased to share Mark Watson’s Statuesque, directed by Annabel Bolton and performed by Katherine Parkinson.

Please note, this recording contains some strong language and adult content.
