WORD:PLAY 4 – One word, Six New Plays

Box of Tricks Theatre presents WORD:PLAY 4 which is directed by Adam Quayle and Hannah Tyrrell-Pinder, designed by Stephanie Williams and produced by Dan Baker.

Playwrights: Daniel Kanaber, Jaki McCarrick, Katie McCullough, Siân Owen, Becky Prestwich, Daniel Smith

For one week only, at the Arcola’s new-found home, Word:Play 4 will be kick-starting Studio 2 with an injection of revolutionary theatre from the best new writing talent.

Following the critical, sell-out success of previous incarnations, our flagship project Word:Play will be championing the next generation of new writing with six specially-commissioned fifteen-minute plays inspired by the word “Revolution”.

Box of Tricks is a new writing company committed to developing and producing the best new work around; discovering, nurturing and promoting the next generation of playwrights.  We are drawn to plays that have an immediacy and relevance today: the stories that need to be told, the voices that need to be heard.

For Word:Play 4, Box of Tricks have been using crowd-funding website WeFund (www.wefund.co.uk) to raise money towards production costs.  If you wish to know more about this, then please contact Dan Baker.
