Tales from the Edge

In May 2020, Cat on a Piano joined forces with BAFTA nominated writer Carolyn S Jones, to create a series of monologues featuring characters who were on the edge of society. Aimed at raising money for Acting for Others, these five pieces, recorded in isolation, are an insight into how they navigate a new and difficult world.

To see the monologues, visit Tales from the Edge and please consider donating to Acting for Others, an excellent charity providing much needed relief for those in the performance industry

Cat on a Piano Productions and Second Best Best theatre are proud to present our first Barred sketch, exploring Shakespeare’s language.
