"Writing Someone Else's Story" is a workshop from In Motion Theatre Company touring to local writers groups in support of our upcoming production of Shattered, showing at Lyth Arts Centre on June 12th.
Shattered is a new play inspired by interviews with families who have experienced the sudden loss of a child and the effect it has had on them them years after the event. The play explores the universal themes of grief, loss and isolation and the humanity, humour and isolation of everyday life. In this workshop playwright Lisa Nicoll and director Jordan Blackwood, will talk about this process and lead a practical exploration of the many different ways you turn fact into fiction.
All levels of experience are welcome, just bring something to write with. Entry is free!

The ancient folklore tradition of ‘buying the wind' was common across Caithness and the fishing routes of the North Atlantic. The tradition involved sailors purchasing 3 knots of thread, rope or fabric, to be undone as wind is required, but the mariner is instructed on no account to untie the third knot, as it may start a hurricane.
