Stratford East are hosting a series of six commissioned script-in-hand performances across April and May. This week, the final two performances are taking place on Tuesday 3 May and Thursday 5 May, with tickets from £5.
Each stand-alone performance questions urgent political issues, calling out injustice and interrogating systems of power.
Tuesday 3 May:
‘IT’S NOT LIKE IT’S ILLEGAL’, written by Amy Trigg and directed by Jane Moriaty, depicts a group of sixth-formers who are facing expulsion after throwing a party on school grounds. It has been described as ‘An angry comedy about politics, privilege, and parties’. It includes suspicion, whistle blowing and friends turning on each other. You can book tickets for this event here.
Thursday 5 May:
The final performance titled ‘I’M TIRED OF WAITING, SOMEONE PASS ME THE DUCT TAPE’, is written by Travis Alabanza and directed by Milli Bhatia. It tells the story of two trans girls who are tired of waiting for the medical system. In frustration, they decide to take matters into their own hands. You can book tickets for this performance here.
