Festival Of New Writing





Hydrae Productions led by director Steve Tyrell recently held an international competition for new short plays.

Four short plays that have never been publicly performed were chosen.

These will be on show and 14 actors will be giving it their best.

The Lazar House
Set in a room in a scientific research establishment, two young people wake up and find themselves prisoners, but don’t know why.

Kaye’s Adventures in Ukplc
Kaye is an ordinary man with financial problems. And on this day, he discovers the consequences he must pay when confronted by the increasingly hostile establishment.

Enigmatic Lucidity
A man wakes from a nightmare, where his wife is trying to stab him. But is he awake, or is the nightmare still on.

The Couldabeen Hamlet
What might have happened prior to the first production of “Hamlet” in 1604.

They will be performed over two nights at St Ives Theatre.

Saturday 19th and Sunday 20th September 2009.
Doors open at 7.30pm, performance starts at 8.00pm.

Tickets:
£7.50, £7.00, £5.00 (concessions).

Box Office:
St Ives Theatre, The Stennack, St ives.
Open 10.30am - 4.00pm weekdays.

Please do come along to support this. Steve has twelve more plays from the competition that are of a high enough standard to produce. So if this production is successful these will be on stage in the coming months.
