Across the country thousands of people are involved in protests and debates, sparked into action by the largest cuts to public spending since World War Two. Theatre Uncut is a national theatre event in response to these cuts, bringing together some of the UK’s leading dramatists.
Theatre Uncut’s flagship event will be held at The Vault, Southwark Playhouse from 16th March to 19th March 2011. March 19th will see drama groups, universities, youth clubs and theatre companies nationwide join the event, staging their own versions of the shorts in a national theatrical uprising.
Writers for Theatre Uncut include Mark Ravenhill, David Greig, Dennis Kelly, Jack Thorne, Lucy Kirkwood, Laura Lomas, Anders Lustgarten, Mark Ravenhill and Reclaim’s writer in residence, Clara Brennan, all of whom have agreed to donate their work rights free for the duration of the event.
