Double Bill: Stone Play & Comment is Free
Fri 31 March 2023 - Sun 2 April 2023
STONE PLAY by D.T.A.T..
Written by Duncan Crompton
In a not-so-distant theatre, one small band of players and an AI assistant must face their greatest challenge yet- more so than even forgetting their lines or tripping over the furniture. Haunted by a virtually known future which is past, and a past virtually forgotten, they seek the MacGuffin of truth, as must all great players.

COMMENT IS FREE
by James Fritz
Everybody hates Alistair Cooper and they’re not afraid of saying it. A journalist forms the centre of a devastating media storm in this urgent, gripping and innovative play.
Comment is Free is James Fritz’s brutal examination of our obsession with free speech and the voyeuristic nature of social media and 24-hour news.

It shines a harsh light on contemporary society and asks big questions about the power of words and personal responsibility, both on and off line.
“A brilliant piece... It took my breath away”
