Event description


Following on from their first successful festival in February this year Untold Stories are back with

another exciting bill of new writing from a diverse group of up and coming writers. Once again we aim

to discover and develop new and exciting plays to inspire, engage and resonate with our 2 nd two day

festival, which will kick off a run of four more we will be presenting throughout 2017.

Presented by Untold Arts, a company that specialise in telling unknown stories from the past and

present day, the plays over the weekend explore immigration, fidelity, the loneliness of time, consent

and ice cream.

On both nights Untold Stories will present 7 new plays:

Sleeping Arrangements – Roisin Rae

Beth's on a business trip with her male colleague. There's one room booked. Are they really just


Scapegoat – Ian Grant

A political tragedy of power, love and punishment

Dreams of England – Amal Chaterjee

A parent responds to a child’s question about a distant country, evoking questions and stories of

borders, migration, belonging and gender

The Twighlight Zone – Suzy Gill

That feeling you get when you just know.

Cornet Solo – Ben Francis

Ianto is an ice cream seller with a jaundiced view of humanity. One average day he gets a request

from a very unusual customer that completely changes his world.

Tick Tock – Mark Lindow

‘Time, it’s a funny bugger. Not enough when you need it, too much when you don’t.’

Not Guilty – Rebecca Jones

A short, sharp, but completely human shock into understanding consent and affect, through re-

interpreting intimacy, love and community.
