Danni the Champion
Wednesday 9 September @ 9:00 pm
NATIONAL THEATRE of SCOTLAND
Young Danni isn’t like the other girls in town. She’d rather be watching drag races down at the airport or tearing about behind the wheel of her brother’s car, Lynyrd Skynyrd tunes blasting on the stereo. Bored of her life on the island and stifled by her passive-aggressive parents, she dreams of hitting the road and showing everyone what she can do. A powerful short from writer Iain Finlay Macleod, starring Francesca Taylor Coleman and directed by Laura Cameron-Lewis.
Produced by the National Theatre of Scotland, in association with BBC Scotland, Screen Scotland, BBC Arts’ Culture in Quarantine project, An Lanntair and Studio Fir Chlis with support from Hopscotch Films.
“What I’ve enjoyed most about Scenes for Survival is hearing so many different voices and stories from all over the country. It’s a great format for experimentation and hearing hidden stories you wouldn’t otherwise have heard. It also gave hope to a lot of people during a difficult time, it still does. And it has a real legacy due the Scenes for Survival Hardship fund. I hope it continues. The films are entertaining and thought provoking. It creates a sense of community and connection and has real worth.”
Iain Finlay Macleod, Writer
SCENES FOR SURVIVAL HARDSHIP FUND
The Scenes for Survival Hardship Fund is a fundraising campaign launched by the National Theatre of Scotland in association with the Federation of Scottish Theatre, the McGlashan Charitable Trust and leading Scottish Theatre organisations, to raise money for those in the sector who have been hardest hit financially and are experiencing drastic economic and emotional hardship.
All donations to this fund will go directly to provide support for those most impacted within Scotland, be they actors, writers, creatives, musicians, technicians or any others within our industry.
A sector-wide call out with information and details of how to apply for support from the SFS Hardship Fund will be launched at the end of July 2020. The Federation of Scottish Theatre and the McGlashan Charitable Trust will ensure equitable distribution of the money raised.
We would be grateful if you would consider making a small donation to the Scenes for Survival Hardship Fund. Thank you for your support.
