The Big Picture - Tales of Shoreham-by-Sea
Marlipins Museum, Shoreham-by-Sea
30th September & 1st October 2023
“A truly immersive, intimate walk through Shoreham's history and an innovative and exciting event in this year's Shoreham Wordfest literary festival!” - Ingenue Magazine
An immersive theatre history trail and part of Shoreham WordFest.
Lights, camera, action! … Fingers crossed.
Budding screenwriter Sylvia Morley is searching for inspiration for her next script. Take a trip through time as she threads the history of the town into would-be projects and stories just waiting to be told. Whilst journeying through the oldest secular building in Britain you can experience Shoreham through the ages (as well as it’s glamorous connection to the early days of film-making) and perhaps, with a little help from others, Sylvia may well find, tucked away amidst the exhibits and artefacts, the inspiration for her next idea, her next killer script, her next… Big Picture.
Produced by Half-Time Orange Theatre with Shoreham WordFest in association with Marlipins Museum and Sussex Past
