Park Theatre announces intimate readings season

This winter the Park Theatre will host a series of intimate readings presented by The New Actors Company.

Sunday Readings in the Park will see readings of rarely performed plays in Park90 with a handful of actors on selected Sunday afternoons between 11th October and 6th December at 2pm. 

The inaugural season, Rediscovering British Gems, is a collection of rarely performed theatrical treasures by some well-known, and perhaps not so well known, British playwrights: J.M Barrie, Susanna Centlivre, John Galsworthy, John Hopkins, J.B Priestley, James Saunders and George Bernard Shaw. Each season will give a unique insight into the hearts and minds of some of the world’s greatest playwrights.

After each one-off performance the audience will be invited to stay for a short Q+A discussion where members of the cast and the director will give their insights into the play and answer questions.
