We’ve had a tough few days of decision making, but we have now selected our line up for the February Descent, and we could not be more excited about it.
So without further ado, the plays are:
Out the Back by James Aden
Three beautifully understated monologues unfold a tale of horror that disturbs the quiet of Northern English suburbia.
Satellites by Joe White
When Lauren meets Nathan in a pub garden is it destiny, or just another Friday night? A blackly comic take on love, fate and boy meets girl.
Loot by Janice Hallett
Three rioters return home with their ill-gotten gains – but they might have got more than they bargained for.
Semi-Detached by Ian Kendall
In a world of rising immigration and crashing economies, this is a comic and brutally honest look at modern day prejudice and paranoia.
Room for Improvement by Andrew Turner
An estranged couple arrive at a cheap hotel, hoping to get some rest. But the noises from next door keep them awake and force them to face what’s been left unsaid.
From hilarious comedy to poignant monologue, there’s a bit of something for everyone so we hope you’ll join us to see these wonderful plays performed for the very first time.
Keep an eye on the blog for more info on the plays and the writers. All directors and cast will be announced right here in January too.
Descent Shorts is on the 7th February 2013 at the Cockpit Theatre in Marylebone. See you there!
