One Voice: Remembrance: Old Vic Theatre streams short monologues
James R | On 09, Nov 2020
The Old Vic Theatre is marking Armistice Day this week with a stream of short monologues simple titled Remembrance.
Originally staged in November 2018 to mark 100 years since the Armistice, One Voice: Remembrance is a series of five solo performances curated by Arinzé Kene and directed by Annabel Bolton, written to shine light on the powerful, poignant and surprising stories often hidden in the shadow of conflict.
The monologues will be streamed for free on the theatre’s YouTube account (with a recommended age of 12 and up). They will be available to watch online from 8pm on Monday 9th November until Monday 14th December. They join a range of online broadcasts and activities around Remembrance Sunday, which you can read our full guide to here.
