Following its premiere at the Belgrade Theatre, Richard and Rishard's The Square will be available to watch online from 6pm on Thursday 12 August.
Developed as part of our Reform the Norm programme, The Square was one of ten micro-commissions we awarded in partnership with Unlimited, following a call-out for proposals from local d/Deaf, disabled and neurodivergent artists.
In autumn 2020, Richard Walls and Rishard Beckett were commissioned to film the pilot episode of a brand new, fully-fledged soap opera set in Coventry.
Beset by a national lockdown in November, the duo were confronted with a choice - return the money or plough ahead with a lockdown-friendly, reimagined version in which the two of them play all the parts.
Head back to this page at 6pm to watch the film in full, or read Richard and Rishard's guest blog to find out more about the process of creating it.
