Tomorrow is a New Day: The Story of Jennie Lee online development
Next week I will be directing the online development of the play about Jennie Lee, which will have a showing at 7pm on Thursday the 22nd of October. Tickets are available now!
Born in Lochgelly Fife in 1904, Jennie Lee, a daughter of a miner, became the first ever Minister for the Arts and a founder of The Open University. This is her story, told by others who did not know her.
Presented by Knights Theatre, development of the play began in April 2019 with a workshop in Jennie Lee’s native Lochgelly; and continues apace with a rehearsed reading to be presented online - in the spirit of the “University of the Air”. Tickets are available by donation, with a suggested donation of £3. All donations will directly contribute to the future production of this play, and help support artists in challenging times, so please consider donating more if you can.
Started in 2019 by playwright Matthew Knights, Knights Theatre aims to create Bold, Entertaining, Imaginative and Thought-provoking theatre; to challenge social injustice and continue the tradition of popular political theatre in Britain; and to engage new audiences by creating contemporary plays which explore social history.
With support from Creative Scotland, ONFife and The Open University in Scotland.
