"Theatre Uncut isn't just a performance, it's an idea: that theatre can be immediately responsive to world events, engender discussion and effect change." Lyn Gardner, The Guardian
The idea is simple. We ask leading playwrights to respond to current political situations.
We then make their response available for anyone to perform anywhere rights-free.
Over the past 4 years Theatre Uncut plays have been downloaded and performed by over 6,000 people in 26 countries across 4 continents.
Here's a map of everywhere the plays were read and performed in 2014:
The Theatre Uncut team work hard year-round to make these plays available for people all over the world to perform rights-free, so if you are able to make a donation towards our continued work it would be deeply appreciated.
