Women’s Writes

Three brand new short plays by female playwrights

The ONCOMM Nominated Women’s Writes returns, this time with three brand new short plays written by female playwrights…

Reclaim The Night written and directed by Melissa Kelly Franklin. A woman with bloodlust for revenge has an unexpected realisation – that perhaps there is another path that could lead her out of the night? Starring Leah Harvey and Danny Horn.

A Thousand Eggs by Farah Najib. Two friends sink into a pit of existential despair. One too many joints and a frank conversation with a robot leads to the realisation that their bodies’ resources are decaying. Directed by Zyrenka Cox. Starring Emma Zadow and Ella Hunter Clark.

Everything by Alex Critoph. A woman’s life is changed forever when she rockets into space. As she places her thumb over the earth, has she found what she already had? Directed by Beth Wilson. Starring Bryony Miller.

Join us for a powerful night of female-driven theatre as named “an empowering start to 2021” by DIVA Magazine, “hottest front room seats for online theatre” by The Guardian, and “Politically and socially imperative for today’s audience” by London Theatre.
