One Way Ticket – Week Four

Rosie Harris talks ships, scripts and staging for the One Way Ticket tour.

Although we don’t start touring until March, the One Way Ticket team has recently been on a mini-tour, visiting the two superb ships (did I mention the ships?) that make up half of our tour venues – the magnificent SS Shieldhall in Southampton, and the equally lovely LV21 in Gillingham. The pictures here are of Chris Elwell from Half Moon and me finding our sea legs with some of our lovely venue hosts, along with …

One Way Ticket: Rosie Harris

March saw the final day of the emerging artists’ workshops, which culminated in a rehearsed reading of all the new work generated by the artists involved. New Writing South were again our hosts for the day, and the event was truly inspiring. Chris Elwell, Director of Half Moon, was on hand to input to performance, and Pete and Daniela from Apples were there to video proceedings and input to discussion on taking work forward. Everyone presented great new work, which they will hopefully take forward into other settings.…

One Way Ticket: Pete Hunter

On 9th March I arrived at The Writers Place, New Writing South in Brighton, just in time to wait in the porch way for fear of disturbing Sophie Rose rehearsing her piece, and listening to it, I realised how much work the poets had put into their poems since I had heard the bones of the poems the previous week.

One Way Ticket: Rosie Harris

A guest post from Rosie Harris introducing her new project in the South East, One Way Ticket.

One Way Ticket is a new children’s spoken word show by me as lead artist, currently in its research and development phase, being funded by Arts Council England and with five (count them!) partner organisations. My previous children’s show (which I’m still bouncing around the country with), A Roo In My Suitcase, had the great team of Apples and Snakes and Half Moon Young People’s Theatre on board. As well as …
