Each year Theatre Uncut, set up in 2011 to respond to the arts cuts in public spending, ask writers to contribute short political plays for performance. This year includes work by writers such as Vivienne Franzmann and Anders Lustgarten.
The plays are currently embarking on a UK tour, running until 13 December, which is still due to visit: Soho Theatre, London; Brighton Dome, Bristol Old Vic; Marlowe Theatre, Canterbury; and Liverpool Playhouse.
During this touring period, all the plays featured are available to be performed by anyone anywhere rights free until 13 December 2014.
Theatre Uncut co-artistic director Hannah Price said: ‘It’s an exciting year of firsts for us: our first UK tour, and for the first time we have been able to bring our writers together in a workshop process to explore ideas that they’re burning to write about – issues that affect us all. Once again, these short plays will be released across the UK and beyond for anyone to perform anywhere; inspiring discussion, thought and action. We can’t wait to see what else 2014 brings.’
