PEN – the new writing night showcasing politically motivated work curated by the award-winning company Pennyworth Productions. Also seen at a number of major regional theatres, PEN aims to create a national network of artists making political work, be that new writing, comedy, music, spoken word or performance art.

All plays featured on the evening will be at varying stages of creation, classed as CHALK, PENCIL or PEN.

CHALK: An artist has a brilliant piece of political work, but so far it hasn’t had an audience – we help them find a director and a cast for the evening.

PENCIL: Projects where some of the team are already in place –  Pennyworth sources additional creatives to facilitate a collaboration.

PEN: Pre-existing artists and pieces that are ready to go!

Whether you are watching an established piece or a bud of an idea, these stories will shout loud and be a call to arms.

THIS ONE-OFF PRODUCTION WILL BE PERFORMED ON THE SET FOR ANGEL BY HENRY NAYLOR, DIRECTED BY MICHAEL CABOT, UNTIL 7 OCTOBER 2017.
