“3 double-bills, 6 plays, 9 performances”

Peterborough Mask Theatre are thrilled to present their spring festival of 6 one act plays.
They will be performed as 3 double-bills over 9 performances. This is a first for MASK and we are very excited!

Not only is it the first time for a festival of this kind but, each play is being directed by first time Directors.

So, what else makes the festival different? The Directors, once they had chosen their play from the shortlist, were given another brief…

…each play is to be performed on stage with only cubes for the set. They can use as many as they want, and any size they want – but a cube it must be!

This has been an interesting challenge and we are all eager to see how creative the Directors get.
