THE PLAYS

All the plays have been co-written.  It’s an exciting, creative process, writing with someone else.  We write mostly together, in one writer’s home or in a library.  If we’re in too public a place and we get carried away with our characters, we can have an audience. This has happened!

‘To Better Times’ – Lilly Moon & Lorna Windham 2016


We will be working with CAPNE (Community Arts Project North East CIC) creating fictitious characters and using stories from the community as well as factual events in our play.  The play will be set in the late 1930s in the aftermath of the Jarrow Crusade and is being written for the 80th anniversary of the march.
