Autumn Theatre Season 2019
World premieres, Edinburgh transfers and returning Soho favourites - a new season of surprise and subversion.
Spend an evening with some of the UK’s freshest theatrical voices.
Tamasha is back with an evening of scratch performances featuring dynamic new writing from writers from their 2018-19 Tamasha Playwrights group.
A writer-led collective founded in 2014, Tamasha Playwrights is formed of emerging playwrights from a culturally diverse range of backgrounds. After a year of support and training led by Tamasha’s Artistic Director, Fin Kennedy, the playwrights have developed new scripts that’ll be performed script-in-hand by professional actors.
Grab your chance to see bold new work in development on stage for the first time, followed by a Q&A with the writers and Fin Kennedy.
