About the event

Join our online reading on Zoom in which participants will be invited to read the play or just sit back and listen from the comfort of their own home. The reading will be followed by a thought sharing session and opportunity to ask the writer about their work.

We expect the session to take up to 2.5/3 hours with an interval.

ONDINE: A QUEER FAIRY TALE by Brett Crandall tells the tale of how the titular character finds love when he meets a knight errant, Hans. As the two set out to marry before the King, Ondine will have to face the harsh, cold injustices of the human realm. Can Ondine and Hans truly live happily ever after?’ 

Written in verse, this epic yet short tale is masterfully written with love and joy. With a full cast of assorted fun characters, just waiting to come to life. 

THE COLOURS OF MY LOVE by Graham Knapman is a gut-wrenchingly beautiful true story. About the Russian-born ballet dancer of almost legendary fame Vaslav Nijinsky, who struggled with mental illness and his tempestuous relationship with his lover Sergei Diaghilev, all told through the eyes of his devoted companion and wife. Exploring themes such as grief, fame, artistic expression, depression, toxic relationships and obsession as well as friendship and loyalty. 

 “Romola Nijinsky meets a reporter from Psychic News to discuss her life with Vaslav Nijinsky. She was his carer for thirty years of his life, and she has yet to come to terms with his death.”

Trigger warnings: This play approaches themes of mental health issues and toxic relationships.
