Meantime: A showcase of new writing by young writers, produced by Sell A Door Theatre Company with Greenwich Theatre and The Royal Borough of Greenwich.
Meantime is a collection of ten short plays which spans every category of experience, from online dating to meteor showers, from people trafficking to driverless cars. Meantime is an evening of theatre inspired by the culturally and historically rich area of London’s Greenwich, through the eyes of ten promising new young writers.
Going from OCD to Brexit, set in clubs and classrooms, this eclectic, powerful collection of new work inspired by Greenwich and written by the young writers living there makes up Meantime and represents the cultivation of new and burgeoning Greenwich talent. On the program itself, one participant said, “I have learnt reams about storytelling from the tutors, watching plays, and from the challenge of writing my own. I’m so proud to have finished my first real piece, and I plan for it to be the first of many”. These new plays backed by a professional cast and crew are a showcase of the future faces that will be shaping London Theatre.
The culmination of a year of studying and developing their creative writing skills, Meantime brings together the newly formed shows of these developing playwrights with a company of professional actors, set designer, and director, Roy Alexander Weise, winner of the 2016 James Menzies-Kitchen award for young directors whose production of Katori Hall’s The Mountaintop is currently on at the Young Vic.
