Word 2012: Wordsearch
26 May 2012, Central Library
Our Speakeasy project, supported by Islington Giving, is a collective of extraordinary young playwrights from across the borough.
For one night only, they took over Central Library in Islington and invited a public audience to come and play a unique game of new play hide and seek.
The audience collected their Word Search sheet at the door and wandered off in search of new plays, each being performed 'script-in-hand' in nooks and crannies all over the library. Each audience member had to solve a crossword puzzle using clues in each play - with three lucky winners then drawn from a hat to win a Word Bird goodie bag including brand new plays donated by Oberon Books.
