📣 Up next in our National Student Drama Festival and Spotlight series we have the brilliant Born Witness Productions presenting their brilliant new show MCR on Saturday 13th March at 6pm 📣 ‘It’s kind of a Northern London’ 🐝MCR is a new verbatim piece that aims to challenge notions of collective identity in a city that is often mocked, sometimes fetishised, but never ignored. Using 22 interviews conducted with various individuals across the city, MCR presents a collage of moments that reflect a little bit of everything that Manchester has to offer. 💻Head over to our website to sign up for the sharing: https://www.nsdf.org.uk/whats-on/nsdf-spotlight-born-witness-980/
