Update: My Voice Was Heard But It Was Ignored postponed tour
Due to the government announcement that West and South Yorkshire will go into Tier 3 restrictions, meaning that all indoor entertainment and tourist venues must close, it is with great sadness that Red Ladder is unable to tour our new production My Voice Was Heard But It Was Ignored.
Rod Dixon, artistic director of Red Ladder Theatre Company said,
“While this is the news that none of us wanted, we are proud of our cast and creative team, company and freelance staff who have worked incredibly hard to create this new production. Whether adapting to making this new work in a Covid-secure rehearsal room or working remotely, everyone has put an incredible amount of time, passion, dedication and hard work into bringing Nana-Kofi Kufuor’s powerful debut play to life.
More than anything we wish that circumstances were different and that we were welcoming our audiences on tour of our new show. We press on with hope and optimism to bring this work to the stage in 2021 – and Red Ladder stands in solidarity with all our fellow theatre-makers in these difficult times. We hope our audiences stay safe and well”
Director Dermot Daly added,
“Whilst this clearly isn’t what we had in mind when we started on this project we have, during this period, done something remarkable and proven the viability, value, and virtue of theatre and storytelling.
An amazing cast coupled with a nuanced and beautifully rich script complemented by the most dedicated, hardworking, and talented creative team has created something, that, when it’s seen by a wider audience (and it will) will do all of the things that good storytelling should do.
Persevering – as many of our colleagues have – through this period has proven just how resilient and adaptable our wider industry is and can be.”
