Hull: Theatre Uncut – The Power Plays

Wednesday 27th June, Darley’s, 7:30 pm

Middle Child hosts Hull: Theatre Uncut – The Power Plays, a series of short plays written by women in response to #MeToo, performed by Hull-based actors and directed by Josie Davies.

Writers include Niellah Arboine, Sharon Clark, Vivienne Franzmann, Sabrina Mahfouz, Suhaiymah Manzoor-Khan and Atiha Sen Gupta.

See a selection of these works performed for free at Middle Child’s home, Darley’s, on the Thornton Estate as part of National Writing Day, with donations made to Times Up Now UK.

Theatre Uncut was created to get people thinking, talking and taking action on the events that are happening in the world around them.

The idea is simple. Playwrights from a selection of countries are asked to write brand new short plays in response to their current political situation. These scripts are then made available for anyone to perform anywhere for a limited period.

Theatre Uncut is run by artistic directors Emma Callander and Hannah Price.

About National Writing Day
National Writing Day is an annual celebratory project designed to inspire people across the UK to get writing. The message is simple: everyone has a story to tell and sharing it can be a source of pleasure and power.

National Writing Day aims to inspire creative writing on a grand scale – young people are more inclined to write creatively if they see adults around them doing so and writing can benefit people of all ages. National Writing Day welcomes participation from any individual or group, regardless of age, gender, and cultural or economic backgrounds. It takes place this year on Wednesday 27 June and encourages all forms of writing and people to join in via a programme of public, educational and online activities.
