When it Hits the Air

When it Hits the Air, 18-19 July 2021

An Evening with KDC Theatre’s New Writers

The terror. The excitement! THE ANTICIPATION! These are the things going through a writer’s head when that thing they wrote in the deepest darkest lockdown is read out loud, in an actual theatre. Come and support the inaugural cohort of KDC Theatre’s New Writing Group in their creative exploits with an evening of rehearsed readings that celebrate all manner of creations and experimentations. Be surprised and entertained by new plays written by the next generation of playwrights – and be the very first to hear them.

There’s no telling how this will turn out, because when it hits the air, it’s an entirely different story.

Each performance night will have a different selection of short scripts.

7.30pm, 18 & 19 July 2021

Drayton Arms Theatre, 153 Old Brompton Rd, London SW5 0LJ
