Here at Vocal Point, whilst we carry on with some of our groups through virtual meetings, we have been searching for a way to make some post-Covid theatre. Where else but the outdoors. Okay there's the weather....

Throughout lockdown, we have tried to keep as many groups as we can going. Some have shifted successfully to a virtual meet up, others have had to be put on hold until we can return to the various buildings we work in.

We have always been interested in taking theatre out there, rather than being bound by the walls of traditional spaces. With many theatres and other performance places shutting their doors, we have been developing a site responsive play to be staged in a small business. As restrictions ease, we will be looking at places where we can stage this new show in the autumn.
