warnmcr: the sun sets...

So here we are, on the brink of Word of Warning's second live streamed performance, coming to you at dusk tonight. Curiously, for me, these are every bit as nerve-wracking as a theatre show - maybe even more so as much is beyond our control - so keep your fingers crossed that the gods of 'internet weather' are benevolent, and join us at 9pm tonight, Fri 22 May for Will Dickie's White Sun. We've just pushed back our virtual walls to allow more in, so please book via Eventbrite and you will receive a code at about 5.30pm.

If you fancy making a night of it you also have a good selection of aperitifs - Anatomy's Leaves From The Bone Library  (7-8.30pm) or Arden School of Theatre's It's About Time (7.30pm) (also returning on Thu 28 May with their Class of '20)

Over the weekend, you can still view Mark Croasdale's Landbreaks; while Ridiculusmus are screening a trilogy of their work with discussions (22-24 May); or you can view a screening of Rosana Cade's Walking Holding until Sun 24 May. 

Next weekon Wed 27 May, Contact has Uninvited Guests' Love Letters Straight From Your Heart; while MIF has Hafsah Aneela Bashir's The Other ‘P’ Word. On Thu 28 May Forest Fringe TV  has The Museum of Hope in the Dark. There's also a series of live events as part of Block Universe - Sessions (25-30 May).

Ongoing: you can join Quarantine's No Such Thing on the first + third Wednesday of the month. MIF has two online games -  Paloma Dawkins's Songs of the Lost and Nina Freemans Lost Memories Dot Net (til 31 May). HOME's Homemakers has added Javaad Alipoor's A Series of Metaphors About A Plague and Chad Taylor's Lost Online; and you can still watch Bryony Kimmings's I am falling in love with you and it's making me do stupid things and Chris Thorpe + Yusra Warsama's Tell Me (all til 31 Dec). Meanwhile Hester Chillingworth's The Caretakercontinues throughout lockdown from The Royal Court Theatre

Hoping to virtually see you at Will Dickie's White Sun tonight, which brings our 'planned' Spring/Summer 2020 season to a close. While the latter half wasn't exactly what we originally intended, we're both happy to have realised a lot of it; and proud of the lockdown work created by both Tania Camara and Will Dickie.

Unless something unmissable crops up, I'm going to take a few weeks break from this to figure out what comes next. In the meantime keep checking our News + Information page for more pointers to opportunities and show videos online, and @WarnMcr on Twitter for short-notice performances.
