Living Newspaper Edition 3
Written by Travis Alabanza, Gurpreet Kaur Bhatti, Nick Bruckman, Anupama Chandrasekhar, Zain Dada, Josh Elliott, Rabiah Hussain, Sami Ibrahim, Karen Laws, Eve Leigh, Chloë Moss, Anthony Neilson, Margaret Perry, and Rebecca Prichard.
The whole edition included 15 filmed performances ranging from 2 – 15 minutes.
A satirical take on what it means to be getting ‘back to normal’, Edition 3 explores everything from Indian nationalism, to the comforts of lockdown life, to the insidious side of Netflix’s Emily in Paris.
Journeying between the hairdressers for a post-lockdown cut; to the middle of the ocean to see gathered treasures; to a queer karaoke bar somewhere off Dalston for a final dance at the end of the world.
As we move towards life after lockdown, Edition 3 looks back and forward, and questions what’s to come.
Edition 3 cast includes: Isabel Adomakoh Young, Deborah Bahi, Nigel Barrett, Susan Brown, Tom Fisher, Beth Hinton-Lever, Tony Jayawardena, Scott Karim, Ms Sharon Le Grand, Lucy Mangan, Sophie Melville, Siobhan McSweeney, Tom Mothersdale, Caleb Obediah and Sukh Ojla.
Facilitators for Edition 3 include Milli Bhatia, Ellie Horne, Jade Lewis, Lucy Morrison, Sam Pritchard and Izzy Rabey.
