Read by actors from the summer season shows, our playreadings offer a glimpse into the future of potential new productions at the SJT. A chance to experience these wonderful plays alongside their authors for the very first time.


Caterpillar
By Alison Carr

Amateur aviators descend on a seaside town to launch themselves into the sea. In another part of town Claire is looking after her mum, following a stroke. She didn’t want to come back to the town she grew up in and now she’s putting off going home. Simon, a guest at their B&B, is here to fly in tribute to his late girlfriend.

All looking for a way out, a way back, or something completely new.
