The Plan: A Festival of New Writing

Our summer show, “The Plan” presents new short plays by different writers, the 2024 winners in KDC Theatre’s 8th annual new writing competition. All plays start with the same opening line:

“It’s not like we planned it.”

Our writers have taken that opening line and created their stories of what comes next. Each night will present rehearsed readings of new short plays, so be sure to come to both (and get a 15% discount if you book for both nights)!

Location: Drayton Arms Theatre
Dates & time: Tues 25 & Wed 26 June 2024, 7.30pm
Ticket prices: £16.50 / £12 for KDC members (15% discount if you book for both shows)
Run time: 90 minutes, plus interval
