Rare Birds Reading and Presentation

As part of Darlington Arts Festival Join Teesside poet Natalie Scott, who will present her Arts Council funded project in progress Rare Birds – Voices of Holloway Prison. This collection of dramatic monologues aims to creatively retell the story of the notorious London prison from 1852 (when it first opened its gates) to 1955 (when the last woman to be hanged in Britain was executed within its walls). The poems adopt a range of interesting perspectives, including the voices of actual prisoners, staff and other influential people involved in the prison’s history, to create a polyphonic (many-voiced) retelling. Natalie will share some of the fascinating documents she has discovered on her visits to the archives in London and will do a script-in-hand performance of selected poems.
