For the third consecutive year, Theatre Uncut Plymouth brings together a range of local professional theatre-makers to present a series of new plays written by some of the UK’s leading playwrights.

Inspired by the statement “Knowledge is Power, Knowledge is Change”, this year’s plays have been written in response to audience suggestions and a workshop process – and Theatre Uncut Plymouth is one of an increasing number of global events taking part in this scheme.

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

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 for a limited period.

Theatre Uncut is run by artistic directors Emma Callander and Hannah Price. To find out how you can get involved please visit
