On the 21 – 23 July 2020, we premiered six films over three evenings: consisting of wonderful theatre, devised and created during lockdown – all from acta’s theatre groups.
These events are now available to re-watch on demand over on acta’s YouTube channel at “acta community theatre“.
Below are descriptions of the projects and films from each night:
Tues 21 July 6pm: Young Carers & Phoenix
Young Carers present “Stranded”
A group of the naughtiest pupils are taken on a school trip to an island.
Their teacher is new.
What could possibly be wrong?
Phoenix present “Just Us”
After a series of world disasters, very few people are left.
Those that have survived are struggling to carve out a new life for themselves.
Struggling to come to terms with all that they’ve lost, they must learn to work together…
Weds 22 July 6pm: Rapport & acta company
Rapport present “Songs from Home”
“Emotions increase memory processes…music is involved in forming memories” Aleksandra Bekasova (Rapport Participant)

acta company present “Lockdown 2020”
A series of powerful monologues from the acta company; exploring life in Lockdown, from their own and others’ experiences.
At times funny.
Always honest – and at times heart-breaking.
Thurs 23 July 6pm: Lockleaze Kids Theatre
Lockleaze Yrs 1 & 2 present “The Magical Tree”
The children were bored of being inside when they received an exciting letter in the post.
It invited them to go on a magical adventure.
It turned out to be an adventure they’d never forget!
Lockleaze Yrs 3, 4, 5 present “The Secrets of the Lake”
It was an average Saturday in Lockleaze.
The children heard a magical sound.
It was coming from their window… they could not believe what they saw.
Join the children as they meet the most unusual creatures, and explore the magic within Lockleaze.
