In Partnership with Hull Libraries

Discover how reading a play can be just as rewarding as reading a novel.

Get ready to bring old and new scripts to life with an exciting collaboration between award-winning theatre company Middle Child and Hull Libraries, as we share our play collections with the people of Hull.

Unearth new worlds and new stories as a pop-up version of Middle Child’s Theatre Library hits the road, touring local libraries to highlight the exciting plays available on our doorstep.

Playing After Dark workshop

Join us at Hull Central Library for a pay what you can, music-fuelled, interactive workshop that will explore how you can get the most out of reading a play.

Featuring live music and performance, Middle Child will use their distinctive style to unravel two plays and show you that anyone can enjoy hidden the pleasures of play reading.

The event features a two hour workshop from 7-9pm, followed by an after hours social with music from DJ Prez 96.
