Location Map
 

The annual meet is here again!
 
This is exclusively for new plays, bringing together 22 playwrights to present 22 plays that would give us 'slices of life’, with acumen, insight and soulful sharing. Each is unique in its own way, as stories unfold on stage. These are theatre practitioners coming from all sectors of the trade: seasoned pros in acting, the most sought-after playwrights, producers/directors who think outside the box, or ‘crouching tigers, hidden dragons’ who are ready to pounce with latent energy and gifts.
 
This is a zone-within-zone, a stage-within-stage, and the one and only back garden of the theatre world.
