The World Heath Organisation has reported around 22,000 cases of Ebola and more than 8,800 deaths in the last few months. This is the largest known outbreak of Ebola. Oxfam are one of the leading charities assisting affected communities to encourage prevention and treatment. Members of Minotaur Theatre Company are assisting with a series of shorts, aiming to raise money for this devastating crisis.
February 27 - 28, 2015. 8pm. UEA Drama Studio. £7/£5 concessions.
Mariama Ives-Moiba, organiser of the whole event, is studying for an MA in Scriptwriting at UEA, and enlisted the help of all her fellow coursemates. They all wrote a 10-minute short, to be auditioned and performed by students across UEA.
The money raised over these two nights will help buy protective suits, hygiene kits and face masks all of which are central to stopping the spread of Ebola. She would like to give a special thanks to Scott Brown and Edward Dyer for their consistent support throughout this project and to all of the scriptwriters, directors, actors, stage managers and light and sound technicians, for their willing contribution and hard work that made this event possible.
