Gloucester Life Museum Monologues

Talking Objects is a series of recorded monologues that give voice to objects from the Gloucester Life Museum. Actors bring to life the utterly fascinating stories that Scriptorium writers have created. Some of the pieces have a grain of truth to them, some are utterly fantastic, but they are all inspired by objects from Gloucester’s past that the Scriptorium writers discovered at the museum.
