Following last year’s sell-out shows, New Stagers are back with another selection of original short plays, all written by and starring local talent. Described as ‘clever’ and ‘delightful’, our showcase of new theatre explores a diverse range of themes- not to be missed!
This event will mark the first public performance of these plays. Where else can you see 6 shows premiered in one sitting?
Please note that some of these plays contain strong language.
