Since the 1st January 2018, five writers have worked collaboratively, writing a new scene each week in response to socio-political events. We’re asking questions of our media consumption, of the events that have defined the year and those that didn’t. We’re asking how the collapse of Carillion connects to the NHS Winter Crisis, whose voices are missing in the Oxfam Haiti scandal? These weekly responses will be played in dialogue, association and juxtaposition to ask urgent questions of society in 2018.
