Citadel Goes Viral

Hi! This is Citadel Arts Group, a Leith based theatre company dedicated to giving a voice to older people. When the Covid virus hit the country, all our projects had to go on hold. That when we turned to Zoom and we gave our playwrights group the challenge of creating short audio scripts for Citadel to record using the new technology- well, new to us anyway!
