First Fridays Parky Players
First Fridays: Parky Players – Shake It Up and Post Show Q&A with the Cast and Director
A fiercely funny, no-holds-barred comedy about modern life living with Parkinson’s.
When a local community group turn up for their weekly meeting, they are surprised to find themselves in the fantasy world of Snow White and the Seven Symptoms. Be prepared to expect the unexpected and have your awareness of Parkinson’s raised – along with a big smile! A brand-new theatre company formed on Zoom in lockdown made up of People with and Supporters of People with Parkinson’s.
Following the success of their sell out shows in Nottingham and at the Leicester Comedy Festival. Developed with Community Vibe, National Lottery funding from Arts Council England and support from Derby Museums.
Following their super show, join the Parky Players for a Q&A where they can tell you everything you always wanted to know about Parkinson’s, but were too afraid to ask; fill you in on their rise from zoom group to Arts Council Funded performing theatre company, their plans for the future and how you can take part or contribute.
