About the Author

Copyright and Performing Rights Information

Welcome (Back) to VAULT

We once dreamed about offering the chance for talented writers at VAULT to see their work published. (Enter Nick Hern Books, confident, bold, even foolhardy.) Three years on, and Plays from VAULT is becoming a festival staple. It’s energising to know that there is interest in, and demand for, the VAULT alumni of 2018.

This year, these committed and passionate publishers have gone a step further, becoming the sole sponsors of the VAULT New Writers Award. Alongside writer Camilla Whitehill, and producer Rosalyn Newbery, eight brand-new playwrights are taking part in an eight-week writers’ course at VAULT. It wouldn’t have happened without Nick Hern Books and they deserve loud thanks for their belief in nurturing new talent.

VAULT 2018, the sixth festival, runs for eight weeks. We are joined by more venues than ever including the Waterloo East Theatre, the Network Theatre, and the Travelling Through Bookshop. There are already over 330 groups of artists featured in the programme at this year’s festival.

If you’re reading this, there’s a good chance you’re already curious, so forgive us if we co-opt you a little further. If you’re good at being an audience member, come and see more than you planned to at VAULT. If you’re good at being an artist, think about bringing something to VAULT 2019. If you’re good at being a commissioner, you can go right ahead and commission these writers.

To the future!

Note on Text

A lack of punctuation at the end of a line indicates the next line should follow on at a pace.

This ebook was created before the end of rehearsals and so the text may differ slightly from the plays as performed.
