This weekend Show of Strength bring objects in Exeter’s Royal Albert Memorial Museum to life and showcase writing by local people.
Watch a series of 12 five-minute monologues performed in the museum’s galleries, close to the objects which inspired them. All the monologues were written and developed in a series of workshops run by Show of Strength in March and April this year. Join us on Saturday and Sunday and prepare to see museum objects in a completely new light.
