Gripping yarns project at Exeter museum
Public invited to take part in writing workshops at RAMM in Exeter
THREE cultural organisations have joined forces to organise a series of free writing workshops.
Exeter Northcott Theatre and Show of Strength Theatre Company are working with the Royal Albert Memorial Museum and Art Gallery to get people to devise five-minute monologues based on items they have chosen in the museum.
Twelve selected Gripping Yarns will then be performed at the museum on Saturday and Sunday, May 12/13.
The first workshop took place on Saturday and a second is today, Friday, from 10am to 12pm in the RAMM garden room.
