In the Theatre Room, Get your Act Together will be showcasing their latest work. This initiative is run by More or Less Theatre in consultation with the Chamber of Scientists and the team behind Science in the City, with the support of the Valletta 2018 Foundation and the Malta Arts Fund within Arts Council Malta. It is is aimed at teaching theatre skills, tackling difficult subjects, based on information from professionals, both in academia and theatre. Scripts featured at the festival will involve a discussion on cancer, addiction and mental health in one, and urbanisation, suicide and abuse in an island community in the second. The festival will offer the audience the chance to attend the first readings of each script and later discuss with the writer and actors. The event will be split in two as follows:
- 7.30pm–8.45pm Do you need a Beating Heart?
- 9.00pm-10.15pm You make lemonade
Please note that due to the sensitive nature of these subjects, this event is only suitable for an 18+ audience.
