With his two brothers and mother barely on speaking terms with each other, Liam think there's no better plan to get his family back on track than to book a holiday in a remote part of Northern Ireland in December. But being stuck in a dilapidated cottage in the middle of nowhere means there's no entertainment available other than tearing each other to pieces with their destructive wit...

This September Rose Theatre Kingston is hosting its inaugural New Writing Festival.

From over 400 script submissions, three playwrights have been selected to work alongside director Fay Lomas, the inaugural winner of the Peter Hall Emerging Artists Fellowship, to workshop and develop their scripts ahead of rehearsed readings in the Rose Gallery.

This reading is directed by Fay Lomas and performed by a professional cast.

As part of the Festival we are also hosting three playwriting workshops – have a look at our What’s On page to see how you can take part.


This festival is generously supported by Arts Council England.
