INK brings INK ON TOUR – East Anglian Tour – BOOK NOW!


A celebration of the short play at 12 venues across East Anglia


For tickets and dates see below



Stop press – **new venue added** – Walberswick Tuesday 17th May 2022


In May, after the hugely successful INK Festival, some of the best plays are going on tour to 12 venues in East Anglia, with contributions from writing superstars such as Miranda Hart.

INK is a vital platform for new script writing and celebrates the short play, an under utilised artform, proving that the most exciting new plays can be unexpectedly short and entertaining. Over the last 7 years INK has produced over 500 new short plays showing how theatre can colonise new spaces, strange time slots, and different mediums, while providing short-form entertainment that captivates audiences.

Each performance will see nine brilliant short plays performed, from new writers to established playwrights.

There will be two 45 min halves with an interval. You may cry, laugh, feel shocked but most importantly, be prepared to be entertained!

The Line up

The Spanish Friend by Judy Upton, Shooter by Kimberly Kalaja, Raghead by Tom Coash, Stay Call! by Kevin Cuffe, Press Pray by Seth Freeman, Elvis & Me by Jan Etherington and Gavin Petrie, The Most Important Journey Doesn’t Need a Passport by Miranda Hart, Consent by David Butler, Michelle and Little Fish by Sarah Baxter.

Julia Sowerbutts, Artistic Director of INK, comments: We are delighted that 9 of the best brand new short plays which premiered at INK Festival 2022 are now going on tour to communities throughout our region. They have been selected from over 2000 new submissions by new and experienced writers – many with East Anglian connections. Libby Purves wrote that “the world needs to pay attention to INK – it belongs to its emerging unknowns, and the creative future of our region and nation”
