About this event

The Script Room is bringing three brand new plays to Richmond on March 15 showcasing the best of theatre writing at Richmond Library's 'Workspace'.

A highlight of the evening will be the first showing of 'Cherie - My Struggle' by Spectator theatre critic Lloyd Evans.

In a hilarious and revealing talk to the audience Cherie, played by Clare Kissane, tells her personal story - from precociously clever school girl to 'first lady' at No 10.

This play is fake news, celebrity scandal and the human side of politics all rolled into one brilliant theatrical tour de force.

Writers Jess Green and Pete Talman - two young writers with a real talent - start the programme with their plays 'The Loaves and the Fishes' and 'Contactless'.

'The Loaves and the Fishes' is a poignant and moving encounter between a young woman Bea, and Maggie, a much older woman who volunteers at a church run food bank.

In 'Contactless' a young married couple wrangle endlessly in a hilarious story of two professionals trying to keep the spark of their relationship alive.

The Script Room is the latest project from director Barry Edwards and his company Optik Theatre.

The plays will be performed in staged readings by Optik's superb professional cast.

The Script Room is sponsored by Richmond Libraries and is an Optik Production for the Richmond Festival.

Note: the event is in centre of Richmond 5 mins walk from Richmond Station (District Line and overground).
