Preview by Paul Nelson
NOW in its 6th year, the shorts have proved to be a popular attraction
at the Union.
Started in 1997, to encourage new writing, the productions have
gone from strength to strength.
Young directors work closely alongside the playwrights, both
eager to enable each other to learn and discover from each other.
Add to the pot some new actors and hopefully an evening of good
drama is served.
This year, the Union Theatre premieres eight plays each, with
its own director and cast.
There will be a handful of comedies, a cluster of dramas, and
a little bit of weirdness thrown in for good measure.
The directors are Sasha Regan, Ben De Wynter, Janey Clarke, Ian
Groombridge, William Oldroyd and John Kirk.
The event is produced by Sasha Regan at the Union Theatre. Production
manager Steve Miller.
October 21 until November 8, Tuesday to Saturday, at 7.30pm
Tickets: £10 with £7 concessions.
(£1 off for Equity Members. Valid proof must be shown.).
