On Wednesday 1st March, we invited in writer and theatre maker Becci Sharrock to talk about her new arts project and theatre show Letters to Myself. The show is the result of a six month programme of workshops and drop-in sessions asking as many people as possible to write a letter to their past, present or future self. Letters received so far have been long and short, silly and serious.

Ahead of a UK tour, including a date in the Burton Taylor Studio at Oxford Playhouse on 4th April, people from across the country are now being invited to write their own letter to themselves. A section of the show is being reworked to include ‘local’ letters at each tour venue.

Becci’s talk was about her career as a writer and producer and more about the project. She has some interesting stories to tell and shared some of the letters with us.

All of us took home our free letter writing kit, complete with tea bag and biscuit, and have been challenged to write our letter before the Oxford show! An interesting and inspiring talk – thanks Becci!
