We were invited to take part in #ThriveFest for World Mental Health day this year, organised by Thrive Edinburgh.

Strange Town creative director Steve Small commissioned six emerging playwrights to write a monologue about the effects of the lockdown on young people aged 16-25. Working alongside Media Education and six young actors from Strange Town Young Company the results are moving, quirky and uplifting.

On Saturday 10th October as part of #ThriveFest 2 of the monologues were screened followed by a short Q&A over Zoom.

All 6 monologues can be watched here now.
