Speak-up-speak-outTo launch this year’s Write Now Festival we have a selection of short plays to whet your appetite.

Chosen from submissions to the Jack Studio Theatre, these plays explore different aspects of our chosen theme.

We’re giving playwrights the chance to show the world what a real leader looks like (or failing that, to show us where we’re going wrong).

What defines a leader? Do they command or defer? Do we pick them, or do they pick themselves?

Heart warming, thought provoking and humorous, these short plays are drawn from UK and international submissions.

The Plays

Footprints by Joe Murphy and Joe Robertson

Four Interrogations by Maximillian Singh Gill

Queens of the Realm by Ian August
