This Summer we are producing a festival of new plays, in a purpose-built temporary studio on the current Courtyard Theatre stage. The festival is led by our Deputy Artistic Director Erica Whyman with new plays written by Alice Birch, Timberlake Wertenbaker, E.V. Crowe and Abi Zakarian.

The plays in this festival are intended to be a contemporary response to The Roaring Girls season in the Swan Theatre, so we have given our writers an initial provocation:

“Well behaved women seldom make history”*

These daring and radical plays will be performed over two evenings made up of two short plays each playing in repertoire with a shared cast.

Programme A is directed by Erica Whyman with plays by Alice Birch and Timberlake Wertenbaker.

Programme B is directed by Jo McInnes with plays by E.V Crowe and Abi Zakarian.
