British and Israeli New Writing

How does  location affect creativity?

Tik-sho-ret and Sheer Drop Theatre companies present four new works by British and Israeli playwrights.

Date: 5 & 6 March 2013
Time: 7.30 pm
Venue: New Diorama Theatre

The plays selected present a range of voices and styles from British and Israeli theatre. They examine how writers from different places explore ideas that move between global society and their immediate environment.
