The Big Slam: First Draft at 24:7 Theatre Festival
New Century House (The Bar)
Wednesday 23 July 2014
We won!! Huge thank you to our brilliant hosts from 24:7, and to Tony Walsh for hosting.
As the winning team, we get the very special prize of some quality time with Tony. We’ll be organising a one-off event for some time in the autumn – details to be announced soon!
The world began with The Big Bang; maybe it’ll end with The Big Slam. From the prickly approach of rap to the passion of spoken word, from engrossing story-telling to enthralling theatre, listen to words and style collide, and decide the ultimate winner of this cosmic concoction of live-lit.
First Draft put together a team of 3 playwrights, to battle it out in literature slam-style against teams of poets, rappers and storytellers. Who will be victorious?
Our team of playwrights, who battled it out against the other teams of poets and storytellers, were:
Abi Hynes (with actors Ben Jewell and Laura Danielle Sharp)
James Leach (with actor Emma Romy Jones)
Jenny May Morgan
