Theatre Uncut was created to get people thinking, talking and taking action on the events that are happening in the world around them.

Part of an international initiative, Theatre Uncut offers people the opportunity to read and perform scripts by exciting and established writers from across the globe for free during w/c Mon 12th November 2012. Featuring work by a selection of these writers - and staged by artists, practitioners and performers based in and around Plymouth - THEATRE UNCUT PLYMOUTH is a one-off, free event with relevance both locally and internationally.

The idea is simple. Playwrights from a selection of countries are asked to write brand new short plays in response to their current political situation. These scripts are then made available for anyone to perform anywhere. The Theatre Uncut 2012 plays can be performed rights free during the week of 12th – 18th November 2012 creating a week of international theatrical action.
