COME! all ye who wrestle with the times in which we live.

Join us to be stirred, shaken, engaged, listened to and more
as together we bring to life “12 Characters in Search of an Apocalypse”

The 12 Characters offer to us their own complex perspectives on living today, what they see coming towards them, and what they are (or aren’t) doing about it. Using their words as seeds for our conversation, the evening together will include time to engage and explore our own complicated relationships with the questions that arise as the unravelling of the web of life that supports us becomes an increasing part of day to day lives.

Cost: 12 Characters engages in financial co-responsibility: there is an opportunity to contribute both to those who struggled to attend and to those who created the event.

What to bring: A willingness to be moved by what you hear and share your experiences.

We will begin promptly at 19.15 with the reading of the 12 monologues with brief interludes for enquiry and exploration – this will take @ 1.5 hours. Our remaining time together is then open for conversation, exploring and sharing how the unravelling is affecting us, our families, and our communities.

12 Characters ‘On the Road’ was conceived by Jason Stewart and is hosted through GSE. Since 2017, GSE have travelled England, Wales, and Scotland with this project to cultivate conversations among neighbours about things that are often hard to begin. In the coming times, we believe we will need each other more than ever.
