This is a brand new project to be devised in conjunction with playwright Jack Taylor & directed by Actor- Theatre Makers Rachel Mary & Rhys Lawton.

 'A Highdown Schoolgirl gets her first crush in Forbury Gardens; two divers take their last leap at Central Swimming Pool; a conscientious MP visits a food bank in Tilehurst; tempers fray at the 99th Reading Scout Group AGM; and, after drowning his sorrows in the Jazz Bar, a Reading FC fan misses the bus home. Inspired by Craig Taylor’s brilliant state-of-the-nation play, ‘One Million Tiny Plays About Britain’, this new devised work showcases and celebrates the people of bustling, hotchpotch Reading, in a series of well-crafted snapshots, designed to delight, provoke and amuse.
