One Million Tiny Plays About Reading

Progress Theatre, Reading, RG1 5HL
Mon 1st April 2019 - Sat 6th April 2019

A joint production with Progress Youth Theatre

A Highdown School girl gets her first crush in Forbury Gardens; two divers take their last leap at Central Swimming Pool; a conscientious MP visits a foodbank in Tilehurst; tempers fray at the 99th Reading Scout Group AGM; and, after drowning his sorrows at the Jazz Bar, a Reading FC misses the bus home.

Inspired by Craig Taylor's brilliant state-of-the-nation play, One Million Tiny Plays About Britain, this new devised work showcases and celebrates the people of bustling, hotchpotch Reading in a series of well-crafted snapshots, designed to delight, provoke and amuse.

Young performers and adults join together to devise a piece of theatre exploring our local community. There may be less than one million.
