Play Readings

We host regular play readings on Wednesday nights during our summer break from productions for members and those who might be interested in joining us, to screen potential up and coming scripts for production, and also just for fun.

 

Here's what we read this Summer

“He calls me sometimes. Usually in the dark hours of the morning. 'Mummy' he cries. 'Where are you? Come and find me.'”
After years apart two families come together to rediscover their lost friendship. As they try to move forward they are plunged into a terrifying encounter with the past. Struggling to make sense of the extraordinary events that unfold before their eyes even the strongest of beliefs are shaken to the core. Award winning writer Alexi Kaye Campbell's haunting new play, set against the economic crisis of the 1930s, is a boldly theatrical tale of grief and denial.

In the ruins of a garden in rural England, in a house which was once a home, one woman searches for seeds of hope.

Downton Abbey meets The Cherry Orchard... a pastoral elegy with grand state-of-the-nation ambitions, which delves deep into conflicted notions of patriotism and nostalgia in post-Brexit Britain. 'A work of deeply absorbing emotional richness and symphonic density' - Independent 'Fascinating, complex... what makes the play so enormously intriguing is that, as in his King Charles III, Bartlett shows us as a deeply divided people torn between the urge to preserve the past and to radically reform it' - Guardian'Outstanding, thrillingly ambitious theatre' - Broadway World
