Fancy reading a great play in the company of others from the comfort of your own home? If so, grab a coffee and join us on Wednesday mornings on Zoom as we read, explore and talk about David Greig’s Outlying Islands.
No advance reading is required – enjoy finding out what happens each week!
These sociable online sessions are a digital alternative to our normal weekly play-reading workshops and are aimed at older adults.
Outlying Islands by David Greig
In 1939, on the eve of the Second World War, two young Cambridge ornithologists arrive on a remote Scottish island, inhabited only by Kirk, the authoritarian leaseholder, and his niece Ellen, a young woman in love with the stars of silent comedy.
What will I need?
To access the sessions all you need a smartphone, tablet or laptop and an application called Zoom which you can download for free. Don’t worry if you’ve not used Zoom before, we have a step-by-step guide and we are very happy to talk you through it, you'll be practically a Millennial!
