We are happy to announce the next New Writing / New Normal International Theatre Festival from 2 to 4 October 2020.
This event, based on the successful inaugural New Writing / New Normal Theatre Festival in July 2020, will expand its horizons to include more contributors from around the world.
To that end, we are currently looking for actors, directors and playwrights to be a part of the festival:
