Plays from our collectionOur fabulous Drama Queens sessions are back for an encore! We will be exploring some of the all-women plays in our archives, from powerful suffragette plays, through wonderfully dated 1940s comedy sketches, to kitchen sink dramas and campaigning Women’s Liberation plays.

Drama Queens: Play Reading For Pleasure on Thursday 7th July from 4.30pm to 6pm

No acting skills required. Just enjoy an informal play reading without the stress of learning lines or the goosebumps of performing on stage. And you don’t even need to read out loud! Previous Drama Queens have told us it was “Great fun reading the plays together – something I’ve never done before.”

Whether you come to just one session or to all of them, we guarantee tea, cake, dramatic fun and no stage fright.
