Last month we asked artists in the indie theatre community to submit short plays / one-acts for the chance to have their work produced as part of the second half of our season. We received work from many talented playwrights and had the pleasure of reading a wide variety of work. After lots of reading and discussion, we have chosen Ashley Lauren Rogers and will be presenting an evening of short plays called Falsehoods, Fallacies & Fairytales (How We'll Convince You These Plays are about Christmas) with four performances this December!
