Reading Week: LITTLE ROCK & The Palace

6th Jun 2019

StageSpace - Pleasance London

6:45pm, 8:15pm


6:45pm, LITTLE ROCK by Alice Charles

In 1957, Little Rock, Arkansas, became the focus of the Civil Rights movement when a group of African American students attempted to desegregate a local high school. Decades later, the play follows Elizabeth Eckford, one of these Little Rock Nine, as she is thrust back into the limelight.

8:15pm, The Palace by Oliver Gamblin

Sam spies Lisa outside the social services. Maybe she’s a runaway, needs some help, some new threads, a bed for the night. Sam can sort it, maybe even help her earn a few pennies. But then maybe it's Sam needs help. Na. She’s fine. She ain't no victim.

Reading Week connects playwrights and audiences, giving writers the opportunity to hear their scripts brought to life in a rehearsed reading and gain valuable feedback from both audiences and an industry panel.

Join us at Pleasance Islington for this festival of new plays powered by Pleasance Futures, with a double bill of bold, exciting and innovative new writing each evening.

£5 for one Reading, £7 for a Double Bill, £24 for all performances.
