We are thrilled to be showcasing 17 British East and South East Asian (BESEA) playwrights with 17 new short plays. These plays have been written as part of our 2020 Professional Writers Programme.
These short plays were written as a ‘pitch’ idea for a full-length play, the challenge was to essentialise their idea for a play in 5 pages.
This year our Professional Writers Programme was delivered online entirely via Zoom. It ran once a week over a 5 week period during lock down and was led by director of new writing Ng Choon Ping.
Through these incredibly challenging times we have felt compelled to support our freelance theatre-makers wherever possible and what better way to celebrate the company’s 25th Anniversary than to showcase these plays and writers.
Brought to life by over 60 BESEA freelance theatre-makers, these plays will be live streamed throughout the day on Friday 30 October on our social channels.
