Five new short plays developed and supported by The Mono Box.


The Interview by Graeme Brookes 

An absurd comedy written with a biting political edge that will make you laugh, wince, cringe and scream.


Papa by Sid Sagar 

Exploring the troubled relationship between a father and a daughter, Papa questions notions of parenting, failure and masculinity, and asks whether we can ever truly overcome our past mistakes. 


NSA by Charles Entsie 

NSA is about the conflict between doing what it takes to survive in the present, when also trying to secure something for your future.


La Merde by Roberta Livingston 

Chrissy, a black student who is obsessed with make-up, aspires to be as successful as her idol Allegra Aldridge, a YouTube beauty sensation. But as she delves into the growing beast that is the YouTube world she soon discovers the cracks that are hidden within it.


Godfrey by Aisling Towl 

A short play set in an 'up and coming'/ gentrified  South London restaurant, honing in on the kind of seemingly mundane conversations that expose the parts of ourselves we try desperately to hide.
