Curated by Arinzé Kene
Directed by Annabel Bolton
One Voice is a series of newly written monologues, spoken word and song from leading writers and performed by acclaimed actors on our stage − this is theatre in its rawest form. Without scenery, costume, and with nothing to rely on but words, One Voice reminds us what a single voice can do.
Curated by Arinzé Kene (Girl from the North Country, The Old Vic/West End; Misty, Bush/West End) to mark 100 years since the Armistice, Remembrance brings together five new monologues to shine a light on the powerful, poignant and surprising stories often hidden in the shadow of conflict.
Come on Home written and performed by Ben Bailey Smith (Derek, writer of Four O’Clock Club)
An Elephant Alone written by Rachel De-Lahay (Circles at Birmingham Rep/Tricycle) and performed by Inès De Clercq
The Lily Parr Fan Club written by Monica Dolan (W1A) and performed by Melanie Kilburn
Letter written and performed by David Ireland (Ulster American)
Blue Buttons written by Arinzé Kene and performed by Jade Anouka
