Remember the girls who spoke to us at the Uni??

This is the message I got sent via Ravelry

“I’ve looked at some of the projects that you guys have done and they are amazing!

The RED team are very keen to get knitters like you involved with the project, whether it’s loaning us some of your pieces, gifting us some old pieces, giving the young people and the adult mentors a knitting master class, or even knitting us some special pieces for the performances. Of course in return we would love to offer you 5 free tickets to come and see one of the RED performances during the mFEST festival from the 30th of July to the 2nd of August.

RED is a “fusical” reimagining of the story of Red Riding Hood told in live music, drama, story telling, design and film in a promenade performance.

Here is a little taster of what RED is about: RED explores the difficulties that teenagers have growing up and how identities shift and people and never quite what they first appear. You find yourself in the company of Little Red riding hood on the pathway of a twilight adventure of shifting identities, where wolves and grannies, hunters and prey are knitted together by the choices that shape their journeys and ultimately their lives. RED is created, developed, directed and produces by the young people of mPOWER and supported by the Tolbooth, Youth Music Theatre Scotland, First Light Films, Kinetic and Big Screen Bo’ness.

We would really value having your support on this project and hope to hear from you soon!

I was just talking to the director who thought that if you guys come into the macrobert on the 24th of July for 4.40pm then we could talk about it, this may also be a possible knitting masterclass day, but I would have to check with Janet.”

I have emailed and asked if the girls would still like us to come up this saturday and what kind of things they are looking to borrow. I will post here when I have any additional info. It would be great if anyone  can wander up and see them.

    No problem Carol.

    I still have not heard anything back but I will keep you updated when/if I get any more info. Don’t put your plans on hold anyone…. I am sure they will have all the props they need at this late stage…anything we can loan them would be in addition to what they have already resourced.

    I won’t be able to make it on Saturday – a family dinner has been arranged in the west so we’ll be probably be leaving her 4ish and won’t be back till late. I’m happy to offer some finished pieces though and can bring them on Tuesday. I’ll keep an eye out here to see what they want.
