Immersive theatre created by Lizzie Conrad Hughes for the literacy charity to entertain its volunteers at an anniversary celebration. Seven characters emerged from Shakespeare’s 154 sonnets, each with a story of love, loss and life. The actors worked one-to-one with audience members at their tables before a final ensemble song.
