Small but perfectly formed plays since 2005

Sunday 25th March, Arcola Theatre, London, 5pm and 8pm

The Miniaturists is the regular writer-led event dedicated to bringing short but perfectly formed plays to public view. Every show is packed with small original pieces of theatre from an array of talented writers, new and established. Each piece is no longer than twenty minutes and the rich mix makes every event as various and unpredictable as life itself.

The March playwrights are:

Emma Jowett
Pericles Snowdon
Duncan Gates
Christina Balit
Magali Mougel (translated by Chris Campbell)

Pericles Snowdon

The Miniaturists was founded in 2005 by playwright Stephen Sharkey and is curated by him with help from Declan Feenan and Flavia Fraser-Cannon. The Miniaturists have produced work at Southwark Playhouse, Everyman Liverpool and Cornerstone and Latitude Festivals. Previous writers include Moira Buffini, David Eldridge, Kenneth Emson, Duncan Macmillan, Glyn Cannon and Dan Rebellato.
