Lusitania: The Floating Palace
Harlow Playhouse, Harlow Town Centre, CM20 1LS
Thursday 7th May 2015
Razed Roof inclusive performing arts group for people with, and without, severe learning difficulties and disabilities have their production coming up soon at Harlow Playhouse.
This is a WW1 Centenary commemorative production about the sinking of the Lusitania; it is to be performed exactly 100 years to the day it was sunk, killing almost 1,200 people. The matinee performance will be 'to the minute' of the tragedy...so a poignant moment.
Razed Roof has been supported by Arts Council
East to commission a National Theatre playwright, Judith
Johnson, to work with us to devise and write the script; and a
local musician, Pat Crilly, has been writing music and lyrics
especially for this production. (Running time: approx. 1hour)
Harlow Council have provided support for our performances from their WW1 Commemoration Fund. We are also being supported by the Heritage Lottery to develop this project with community groups in community spaces. Other support has come from Hampden Agencies and the Woodroffe Benton Foundation.
