Theatre Uncut was created to raise debate and galvanise action. Each year we ask a collection of the most exciting playwrights to respond to current events through short plays. We then make these available for anyone to download and perform anywhere, free of charge.
So far over 6,000 people have read and performed Theatre Uncut plays in 26 countries across 4 continents.
The plays have been written both leading and emerging playwrights including; Caryl Churchill, David Greig, Lucy Kirkwood, Mark Ravenhill, Stef Smith, Kieran Hurley, Clara Brennan, Anders Lustgarten, Vivienne Franzmann, Neil LaBute & Dennis Kelly.
We have also worked with theatre makers Chris Goode and Rachel Chavkin (TEAM) to create provocations to devise your own politically responsive work.
Recently we have also begun international collaborations so playwrights can tell the rest of the world what is going on in their country through Theatre Uncut.
A new collection of plays will be released in Autumn 2016. Watch this space for further details...
