Theatre Uncut

A nationwide reaction to funding cuts

In a reaction against the recent funding cuts, a group of the UK’s leading playwrights have joined forces to create a collection of powerful short plays. 

Led by Reclaim Theatre and Meeting Point productions, between the 16th and 19th of March, the plays will be performed across the UK and now internationally in theatres, school halls, houses, and anywhere else people can think of.

Follwing the performance at Bristol’s Old Vic on Wednesday 16th, director Emma Callander will be directing staged readings of five of these plays here at the Arches, performed by a stellar cast including Kevin Guthrie, Anne Lacey, Louise Ludgate and Kieran Hurley.

Things That Don’t Make Sense by Dennis Kelly (Taking Care of Baby, Orphans)
