Last year over 200 plays were submitted to the Stephen Joseph Theatre. This New Writing showcase celebrates some of those plays that we think you will enjoy.

This rehearsed reading features excerpts from brand new pieces of work,  presenting an array of talent from around the UK.

After the readings you can meet the playwrights in an informal post show discussion.

Second Stage writers for this year include local writer Peter Robertshaw, Fiona Evans whose previous plays include Scarborough and The Price of Everything, and Niall Ransome – who appeared in The 39 Steps and Treasure Island.
