Written by Leanne Baines. Directed by Joanna Carrick
6 May at 8pm – Online premiere and Q&A
NORMAL TIMES is an incredible new short film about disability in times of crisis, written by Leanne Baines, who is a member of ‘ACT’, The Avenue Community Theatre Company.
Leanne’s powerful writing uses her own experiences during the COVID-19 pandemic as a mother of her disabled son, Mark, drawing parallels to the persecution of people who were different during the 17th Century witch hunts led by Matthew Hopkins. We filmed the play during lockdown using green-screen technology with actors Victoria Gee and Ricky Oakley.
Join us on 6 May for a special online event for the premiere of the film, including a special Q&A about the piece with the cast and creatives. Tickets are free, but must be booked to receive the link to stream the online event.
