Future Voices is an annual project run by Southwark Playhouse. Playwrights spend eight months working with students aged 14-18, with the aim of each student writing a short play. Usually, these plays are performed at the Southwark Playhouse. This year, a certain virus had other ideas so the actors filmed the plays at home, using Zoom and iPhones. The plays have been put on youtube and on the Southwark Playhouse website (and I’m sure the last thing they want is some actor/writer giving his opinion, but you just can’t shut me up sometimes).
This first play is by Aimee Brown. The central character is Francesca Rosa Brown, played by Jessica Hardwick. She’s at the local library and she has a job to do. The lovely librarian (Eva Fontaine) wants to keep the library quiet so everyone can concentrate, but that’s not always possible when Francesca is there.
