Pool by Tom Harvey
directed by Kate Bannister
The Jack’s commitment to giving a platform to exciting new work under the artistic direction of Kate Bannister cannot be ignored.
Pool is one of a number of pieces of new writing in the theatre’s Write Now Festival. It is everything Fringe theatre can achieve and more.

This is a very good production of a play that shows a lot of promise, with strong performances by a very good cast.
Box Chicken by Max Katz
directed by Mark Leipacher
If you peel the skin away from someone do you think people would recognise who they were? From their voice, or from the way their eyes moved, or from how their teeth fit together.
Botticelli’s Angels by Gemma Mills McGrath
directed by Matthew Paker
British Theatre Guide
A shining piece of writing… amongst the strongest new plays to emerge from The Jack’s Write Now initiative.
McGrath’s inspired writing fleshes out believable characters and mines the dramatic wealth from coming to terms with the past. It deserves to be seen by as big an audience as possible.
