A Cockpit Production
Part of Theatre Maker
Every month we present an evening of rehearsed readings of new writing.
Each evening gives writers the chance to have their work read in front of a responsive audience and gives the audience the chance to witness new work and provide informal feedback to help the pieces develop.
The 2019 season will run at 5.30pm on the following dates:
20th January, 17th February, 17th March, 21st April, 19th May, 16th June & 21st July 2019
A rehearsed reading of a two act political satire at the Cockpit Theatre. Royal International is a play which addresses class issues, in which both working class characters and the liberal elite are forced to interact in an interesting and provocative way. The setting is a banking event at a luxury hotel complex besieged by protesters, which forces high flying bankers to clean up the mess from their own party.
With a cast of 9 actors, Royal International has had previous readings in Bristol and London.
Applications are now open!
