Our first ever show was a night of short drama and immersive interdisciplinary performance. We had an amazing time working with some great emerging talent so we want to do it again. Pegs Off! was an exciting mix of art forms that challenged the 'norms' of theatre - Off Peg! will do the same.
Pegs Off! was about obsession and desire but this time our projects will be about love and longing in the city of London. Written and directed by new and emerging talent these short shows will be an opportunity for creatives to experiment, practice and re-fine their skills. They will be a mix of immersive radio, film, theatre and performance.
