A Cockpit Production
Part of Theatre Maker
Every month we present an evening of rehearsed readings of new writing.
Each evening gives writers the chance to have their work read in front of a responsive audience and gives the audience the chance to witness new work and provide informal feedback to help the pieces develop.
The 2019 season will run at 5.30pm on the following dates:
20th January, 17th February, 17th March, 21st April, 19th May, 16th June & 21st July 2019

Down the Pan by Jacquie Hamel
Laraine wants to escape her life in a loo but finds a lot more excitement than she had anticipated.
Down the Pan charts a woman's journey into the unknown, a wacky comedy about a loo attendant on a journey of personal discovery.
