Join us this autumn for a series of script in hand readings of brand new plays, as part of our 37 Plays project.
We are celebrating the 400th anniversary of the First Folio, the first time all of Shakespeare’s plays were brought together in one book, with readings of a series of brand-new plays that reflect the world we live in today.
What is 37 Plays?
37 Plays is a national playwriting project led by the RSC and our partner theatres. We invited writers of all ages and experience to write and submit a play and received more than 2,000 entries throughout the UK. Our panel of judges selected the final 37 Plays from the entries, to form a new folio.
All seven play readings will be chilled performances, taking a casual approach to noise and movement in the auditorium, and open to everyone including babes in arms (not walking or requiring their own seat) and those who feel more at ease knowing they can go in and out of the auditorium during the show. An audio description of each actor will be read out before each reading and captions will be available.
If you'd like to attend one of our 37 Plays readings and require a BSL interpreted or captioned performance, call our Access Line on 01789 331275 or email firstname.lastname@example.org with details of the reading you want to attend.
The further 30 plays will be read across the country this autumn in our partner theatres. See the full listings for performances on the 37 Plays website.
