LUNG Theatre Company: Verbatim 101
Founded in Barnsley in 2012, LUNG is a campaign led verbatim theatre company that tours work nationally. We work closely with different communities to make verbatim theatre and hidden voices heard. LUNG creates work that shines a light on political, social and economic issues in modern Britain, using people’s actual words to tell their stories. LUNG’s work is published by Bloomsbury. We have strong partnerships with Leeds Playhouse, The Lowry Battersea Arts Centre and have developed work at the National Theatre Studio. Past work includes: The 56; E15; Who Cares; Chilcot and Trojan Horse. All of our shows are published with Bloomsbury.
In this workshop LUNG Co-Artistic Directors Helen Monks and Matt Woodhead will be leading a Verbatim 101, exploring the different practitioners and their methods of working, including LUNG’s own practices for their different productions.
