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.
Our 2019/20 season of New Stuff will run on the first Sunday of each month at 7PM:
2 February 2020, 1 March 2020, 5 April 2020, 3 May 2020, 7 June 2020, 5 July 2020
Please join us at 7pm on Sunday 2 February for:
Mask-Man by Nick Read
A darkly comic play about a comic book nerd who joins a paedophile hunting group. When his fantasist tendencies meet the toxic all male environment, Mask-Man is born.
As he finds himself isolated from friends and loved ones and drawn even further into an all male environment and the toxicity it breeds, delusions of heroism and a saviour complex escalate. Dealing with the fallout of a confrontation leads to the discovery of repressed memories and a very unheroic choice.
If you’re a writer, director, producer or theatre-maker and have a piece of new writing that you’d like to put on its feet, in front of an audience, then this is the place for it.
If you have a piece to read and you’d like to apply, then you can do so here. Need more information, click here to find out the full details.
ACCESSIBILITY: The show takes place in one of our upstairs studios, which is only accessible up a spiral staircase. Also, numbers are strictly limited, so it is strongly advisable to book in advance.
