The scripts are here!
The final tiny plays- created from some 100 contributions, whether that be a line, a character or event in 2050- are here to access.
The series of scenes are available to read online on our dedicated BENTLEY MAX blog here: https://bentleymax.wordpress.com/
The blog documents all things Bentley Max. Snapshots of the community for initial research, as lead artist Rebecca immersed herself into Bentley, capture her initial surroundings. The selection of activities used to generate material are available as resources. And finally, images of workshops and final performances populate their own Bentley Max gallery. Enjoy.
What is Bentley Max?
Bentley Max is a project created by Rebecca Manson Jones, Artistic Director ofJust Jones & with Doncaster’s arts development initiative: Right Up Our Street. During the month of October 2015, Rebecca and the Right Up Our Street team led workshops, drop-ins and held informal conversations with people who live in and love Bentley.
The invitation was to imagine a Bentley a bit like everyone knows, only this one is the best Bentley we can imagine. From there, we created characters, events, places where tiny stories.
The tiny stories could were then turned into tiny plays: set in the future, as soon as you can imagine or as far forward as 2050 and beyond.
Over 100 people of all ages contributed to the creation of Bentley Max. We are particularly grateful to all the volunteers at Bentley Area Community Library, the WEA Adult Literacy Group, Bentley Writers’ Group, Bentley Open House, the 1’oclock Club, Dan Jones & the Bentley Shed, Alison Morrell, Bentley Pavilion, St Peter’s Bingo Club, the staff at the Bay Horse Inn and the Top Club,
We have collected the tiny plays together here for everyone to enjoy and perhaps they will inspire you to action.
Remember if you can see an idea, then you can start to make it happen… be careful what you wish for….
