After what has been a very difficult year for creatives and the arts, we are kicking 2021 off with our first ever Short Play Festival. Our company members were asked to produce a play lasting up to 12 minutes suitable for viewing over Zoom and you can find the selected short plays below. 

After assigning a cast and director to each short play, we have been rehearsing via Zoom ready for our performance on the 22nd of January, 2021.
