It is with cautious optimism that Q2 Players welcomes the governmental announcement that indoor performances are to resume.
We appreciate that this initiative will be a great relief to theatres large and small, professional and amateur, across the country. However, we cannot for the moment make any firm pronouncements regarding Q2 productions at The National Archives. While we would love to be able to resume there soon, with our long-awaited performance of Nell Gwynn, the safety of our actors, crew and audience has to be our top priority.
In the meantime we will be continuing a programme of monthly Zoom readings, which have so far been absolutely brilliant and given much joy to performers and audience alike. We may not be able to meet in person, but the spirit of Q2 is alive and well!
Everyone was completely blown away by the talent and inventiveness of both writers and performers at last night’s New Writing Variety Night. If you missed it, or we would like to see it again, the videos are here (first act and second act).
Huge thanks to everyone who took part in the first ever reading of This Blessed Plot, by Craig Cameron-Fisher. An extremely funny and interesting play. For those who missed it, here is a link to the recording.
Thank you to everyone who attended last night’s reading of Words of Advice by Fay Weldon. And well done to the extremely talented cast and director! For those who missed it, or would like to watch it again, the recording is now available here.
