Another theatre festival has had to be cancelled this year ...

This time it's Incoming Festival, co-produced with New Diorama Theatre to celebrate and champion the best emerging theatre companies from the UK and beyond.

However, there's some good news too as the team have organised an online offering called work_from_home - an interactive play performed entirely by participants on a Zoom call, about when things stop working.

It is an entirely new, digital, interactive adaptation of Nathan Ellis' play work.txt, which was nominated for an Innovation Award at VAULT Festival 2020.
