Our friends at the Playground Theatre and Playhouse Creatures have shared a new opportunity.
A community play reading event. Griswold, By Angela J Davies.
Join others on 31st August to read a script about Griswold, the story of the 65 year old woman who engineered her own criminal arrest on the eve of the sexual revolution, and the extraordinary events that led to the establishment of the rights of sexual privacy in the United States.
The landmark and now increasingly relevant, United States Supreme Court case, Griswold v Connecticut, struck down laws prohibiting birth control, established a right of sexual privacy, and directly paved the way for other guarantees of liberty, including, on the 60th anniversary of the Griswold case, the right of same-sex couples to marry.
Date: 31st August 2023
Time: 7pm (free meal with every ticket at 6pm)
Venue: The Playground Theatre - Box Office 8 Latimer Road, W10 6RQ
Griswold Reading Duration: 90 Minutes
Discussion: 30 Minutes.
Free (suggested £3 donation to associated charities).
No experience necessary - community and actors read side-by-side.

Mini-season about rights.
This mini-season incorporates the three strands of our work at The Playground Community. Development and Production, and I am delighted to be celebrating stories by and about older women, with writing that focuses on LGBTQ+ rights, performed by our community, alongside some of our most accomplished artists.
