National Theatre Scotland 5 Minute Theatre Show – June 2014

By Lucy Cameron

In June 2014  the National Theatre Scotland ran a 5 minute Theatre Show project.

The brief was simple. Write a 5 minute play under the umbrella theme of ‘Independence – Yes, No, Don’t Know.’

I wrote a play titled – ‘Me?’

The play looks at what it will mean to British Identity if Scotland becomes independent.

The play was performed at the Electric Theatre Workshop on Monday 23rd June. It was transmitted LIVE to the nation.

‘Me?’ – By Lucy Cameron. 

I directed the play and got to work with the wonderful cast of Emma Watson, Andrea Thompson and Lee Medd.

It was a superb experience. The adrenalin still hasn’t worn off!
