SHORT PLAY FESTIVAL

NEW VENTURE THEATRE, Brighton., BN1 2PT
Fri 19th July 2019 - Sat 27th July 2019


PLEASE PRINT OUT YOUR TICKETS AND BRING TO THE BOX OFFICE


A selection of quality writing over four new and diverse plays.

Four writers have been selected to each produce a 20-25 minute play.

Bryony Weaver, Judey Bignell, Michelle Donkin and Sarah Drew 
have been guided through an editorial process by two professional writers 
and their plays have been passed on to four experienced directors, 
who have continued the development process to bring these plays 
to the stage in our Short Play Festival.

All the writers, directors and their mentors have strong connections with the
 New Venture Theatre.

'AGENCY' 
by Michelle Donkin - directed by Ian Amos.
As a press secretary turned whistleblower prepares to leave a destructive administration behind, 
she is forced to face her embittered colleague for one last time

'HOPE THAT PLAYS A TUNE ALONE'

by Sarah Drew - directed by Mark Wilson.

This is a story about two women who, each in their own way, manage to go on to survive loss in an England slowly recovering from war.  The support and mutual understanding they come to find in each other brings the strength they need to carry on and to grow.

'MATCH AND MATRIMONY'
by Judey Bignell - directed by Chris Gates.
A lovingly written Jane Austen parody with all your favourite characters; the roguish cad, the mother with a mania for marriage and, of course, the gender-fluid female-identifying young man looking for love in a heteronormative world.

'THE COLOUR OF WATER'
by Bryony  Weaver - directed by Alex Epps.
What should be a happy day for the family is clouded over with memories of the past and, when a neighbour arrives unexpectedly, bringing with him a Westerner's view of marriage and relationships, things take an unexpected turn.
