Statement on Covid-19
Please note, we’re currently having a quiet period due to the impact of the coronavirus pandemic.
We’ve written a bit more about that here, but rest assured we’ll be back soon.
However, while we’re off there’s plenty still to do as shown below :
BBC Radio Humberside, September 2020 – exact date TBC
Four more writers from Hull hear their short scripts brought to life by professional actors in isolation and broadcast over BBC Radio Humberside. In partnership with Silent Uproar. Get submitting your scripts here, deadline in 3 August.
Tom Wells Writing Exercises
Six exercises available for free online
We would usually be running our Writers’ Group with Tom Wells right about now but… pandemic. So Tom is kindly sharing some weekly exercises that first-time writers can do from home, starting with Voice (featuring hummus).
A do-it-yourself panto kit, available online for free
Every Christmas at Middle Child we produce an alternative rock’n’roll pantomime for the people of Hull. It’s loud, silly and fun for all the family. With the whole country now in lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic we thought we’d make our most recent panto available to the public – to perform at home!
Policies and creative resources for companies and individuals
To make sure we can still be supporting from a distance we’ve put together a Dropbox folder of our most requested resources, which you can access below.
Q&As on a variety of topics around theatre making and running a company
During the pandemic we hosted eight Q&As with a number of brilliant artists and members of our team. They’re still available over on our Facebook page, just click the link and enjoy!
