UNITED KINGDOM ONLINE: DG Footlights™ feat. Mum by Emma Dawson

July 01 2020 / 02:00 PM - 05:00 PM

Please join us as the virtual DG Footlights™ series continues, celebrating new dramatic works in progress by United Kingdom based dramatists! This virtual reading will present Mum by Emma Dawson.

Mum is about 29-year-old Edie, who lives with her Mum, the only relative that she is in contact with and her only friend. When Mum dies, Edie has to learn to function as an independent person in a world that she severely dislikes.

Edie will be read by Helena Johnson, Mum will be read by Roli Okorodudu, and Emmy will be read by Sharan Atwal. The reading will be directed by Darren Sinnott.

DG Footlights™ is a program, created and moderated by the Dramatists Guild, that connects dramatists with free space in which to hold a public reading of a new work that is currently in development. This initiative operates on a space-grant model: a representative from the Guild will arrange for a venue to donate space during allocated dates and times, and will ensure that the space is available for dramatists to use to present a self-produced reading to the public, with an optional feedback session following the reading. Attendance is always free and open to all.
