A different way of sharing history

THE WARP AND WOOF (OR WEFT) OF LIFE FROM DAYS GONE BY!!!!

Weaving Yarns

As well as writing poetry and songs which share oral history, I’m involved in a project at Croome Court in Worcestershire, devising and performing pieces which share history through site specific theatre. I am one of a group of 8 actors who have been developing new material and then performing it since January. Currently there are 2 plays being performed on Sundays: I play the part of the Cook in Minnie and the Jollop and my next performances are on Sunday July 27th at 11.15, 1.00, 2.00 & 3.00. Here’s the website for details of admission prices https://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/croome/

The Croome grounds are absolutely stunning, so if you fancy a day out with a difference, I recommend it. Our project is called Croome Encounters. Last Friday, we performed both plays to an invited audience of Croome volunteers and staff and had this wonderful feedback:

About Jonathan Caswell

Poet, author, servant of God the Heavenly father and the Lord Jesus Christ...working out his salvation with fear and trembling. - Not trusting in his own deeds, but depending totally upon the finished sacrificial work of Jesus Christ to be, by God's reckoning, a new creature, clothed in Christ's righteousness...which mortal humankind can never attain by their own weak efforts, apart from faith in Christ's work on our behalf. - College-educated, yet wise enough to see that what a man does will not be his ultimate identity nor affect how God sees him or her. - Called by God to do a very difficult thing...apart from God's grace, mercy and strength...to love the sinner (which we all--by nature--are) but hate the sin, which is only paid through Christ, God's Son, - My own God-given gift is that of being a Poet..showing that in all parts of life...God has a loving part in it...as hard as that is to always understand or perceive...given life's realities! Come join me on my journey of discovery?.
