THE
WORKSHOP
 JULY 2019

Based on a true story, Legacies follows the journey of seven young boys who, in 1868, stowed away on a ship bound from Scotland to Canada. Battered by the icy storms and harsh conditions on board, fighting against a crew who are not welcoming of the seven extra mouths, the stowaways’ survival relies on each other - and a woman with sharp eyes who will save generations. Legacies explores the concept of a legacy and how one is created. It brings forward the importance of a single choice and demonstrates how the world is made up of such choices.

 

When you remember those who have come before and wonder about those that will come after.

The purpose of this workshop is to assist in the creative development of Legacies. The workshop will bring together actors, designers, creators and more to work collaboratively on the plot, storyline, script, design and vision of Legacies. The workshop will take the shape of several rehearsals, where the play will be explored and developed. The workshop will culminate in a performance of multiple scenes to a selected audience of theatre industry professionals and leaders.
