The Read Not Dead ground rules are simple. Actors are given the play on a Sunday morning and present it, script in hand, to an audience later that afternoon.

The performances are instinctive, adrenaline driven and inventive. Actors and audiences alike share in the excitement of reviving these forgotten plays that definitely deserve to be Read Not Dead.

 

From our Read Not Dead Audiences and Actors:

Great fun @The_Globe #fideleandfortunio, #readnotdead an unexpected treasure fantastically performed, sprinkled with Latin and humour

One of the most enjoyable evenings I’ve ever spent #ReadNotDead

#ReadNotDead  Rehearsals underway. Much laughter out there.
