Starters for Ten

Date: Saturday 17th May

Using the phrase ‘Speak Up, Speak Out’ as a starting point, we asked writers to explore this incredible human trait, to say something when others won’t, in any way they felt possible. Heart warming, thought-provoking and humorous, these short plays were drawn from UK and international submissions.

The Plays

Lost in the Quagmire by Chris Shaw Swanson

The Limerick by Martin Nathan

A Small Act of Vandalism by Andrew Biss

Cinderella Story by Matt Hanf

Live With It by Zia Moher

On Flies Wings by Jessica Andrewartha

Dead Dove by Nick Myles
