On Sunday 10th November from 4pm at Soho Theatre we're having a very special one off event to celebrate our relaunch, tell you all about our plans for the future, and share some of our favourite artists with you. And we want to meet all you actors, writers, directors and designers that are yet to cross our paths. We'll also be presenting our brand new concept - WikiTheatre! A play started by James Graham and then thrown open to the public, we'll have selected two further parts which we will present live at the event.
Check out the full line-up here, and get your tickets from:
