Descent Shorts: Descent Theatre
Descent Shorts is a regular night of new short plays by up-and-coming writers. The night provides a platform for undiscovered voices and a unique opportunity for writers to showcase their talent and get their scripts heard. Descent work in collaboration with some of London's best up-and-coming actors and directors in order to produce the freshest and most exciting new works the city has to offer.
Line up includes:
Out the Back by James Aden
Three beautifully understated monologues unfold a tale of horror that disturbs the quiet of Northern English suburbia.
Satellites by Joe White
When Lauren meets Nathan in a pub garden is it destiny, or just another Friday night? A blackly comic take on love, fate and boy meets girl.
Loot by Janice Hallett
Three rioters return home with their ill-gotten gains - but they might have got more than they bargained for.
Semi-Detached by Ian Kendall
In a world of rising immigration and crashing economies, this is a comic and brutally honest look at modern day prejudice and paranoia.
Room for Improvement by Andrew Turner
An estranged couple arrive at a cheap hotel, hoping to get some rest. But the noises from next door keep them awake and force them to face what's been left unsaid.
