Writers include: BAFTA nominee Dawn King, Olivier Award nominee Morgan Lloyd Malcolm, Ben Weatherill (Jellyfish, The Bush Theatre and National Theatre, now in development with the BBC), Aisha Zia (No Guts No Heart No Glory, national tour, BBC4, Fringe First Award winner) and Debris Stevenson (Poet In Da Corner, Royal Court and national tour, Evening Standard Best Newcomer nominee). All five writers are currently developing full-length plays for Suba Das’s inaugural HighTide Festival in 2021.
Digital productions of the monologues created by HighTide and featuring some of the most exciting actors in the UK will be made available over the next few weeks. We are pleased to also make the scripts available royalty free for actors and directors to make their own digital versions, which we will be showcased via our social media channels.
Jade Anouka will perform Aisha Zia’s piece, Katie Lyons will take on Morgan Lloyd Malcolm’s new work, Sophie Melville with star in Ben Weatherill’s Monologue, Shobna Gulati will present Dawn King’s new piece and Debris Stevenson will perform her own newly penned monologue.
