Now in its sixth consecutive year, the multi-award-winning Finborough Theatre presents Vibrant 2014 – A Festival of Finborough Playwrights, its annual explosion of new writing and part of its 20 Premieres season, running between 2–20 November 2014.

 This year's festival features 15 staged readings of new works by 15 UK and international playwrights, discovered, developed or championed by the Finborough Theatre.

 As always, Vibrant 2014 – A Festival of Finborough Playwrights offers an eclectic idiosyncratic selection of new plays from both established writers and first time writers, aged from their 20s to their 70s, including dramatists from Australia, the United States, Canada, and from throughout England including Cornwall, the North East, the East Midlands and Earl's Court itself. This festival also includes more female playwrights than ever before, work from South Asian, East Asian, British-Lebanese and Australian Aboriginal playwrights, work from our local community, and new plays from our Channel 4 Playwright-in-Residence and all three of our Playwrights-on-Attachment.

Concentrated solely on full length works for the stage, Vibrant 2014 – A Festival of Finborough Playwrights continues to introduce you to some of the fascinating diverse vibrant voices we have nurtured. A unique opportunity to see behind the scenes at one of the UK's most exciting theatres as we continue to discover and develop tomorrow's plays today, brought to life by some of the UK's most talented actors and directors.

As West London's original new writing festival, our Vibrant festivals have included 79 new plays, 21 of which have gone on to be produced in full productions at the Finborough Theatre including Mirror Teeth by Nick Gill, The Man by James Graham, And I And Silence by Naomi Wallace, Black Jesus by Anders Lustgarten, Carthage by Chris Thompson and Nona Shepphard and Craig Adams' musical version of Thérèse Raquin.

Despite remaining completely unsubsidised, the Finborough Theatre has an unparalleled track record of discovering new playwrights who go on to become leading voices in British theatre. Under Artistic Director Neil McPherson, it has discovered some of the UK’s most exciting new playwrights including Laura Wade, James Graham, Mike Bartlett, Sarah Grochala, Chris Thompson, Jack Thorne, Simon Vinnicombe, Alexandra Wood, Al Smith, Nicholas de Jongh and Anders Lustgarten.

It is the only theatre without public funding to be awarded the prestigious Pearson Playwriting Award bursary for writers not once, but eight times: Chris Lee in 2000, Laura Wade in 2005 (who also went on to win the Critics' Circle Theatre Award for Most Promising Playwright, the George Devine Award and an Olivier Award nomination), James Graham in 2006 (also subsequently nominated for an Olivier Award), Al Smith in 2007, Anders Lustgarten in 2009, Simon Vinnicombe in 2010, Shamser Sinha in 2012 and Chris Thompson in 2013. Three bursary holders (Laura Wade, James Graham and Anders Lustgarten) have also won the Catherine Johnson Award for Best Play written by a bursary holder.

Vibrant 2014 – A Festival of Finborough Playwrights is again curated by Finborough Theatre Artistic Director Neil McPherson, winner of The Writers’ Guild Award for the Encouragement of New Writing, and twice winner of the OffWestEnd Award for Best Artistic Director.


WEEK ONE - 2-8 November 2014

Sunday, 2 November 2014 at 7.30pm

The House of My Father by Carmen Nasr. Directed by Zoe Lafferty.

While war rages in the streets of a divided Beirut, a family refuses to abandon their home as they await the return of their father. As bombs fall and soldiers appear unannounced in their garden, Mona and her family cook, repaint the kitchen, plant flowers and persuade each other that all will be well. Exploring the sometimes forgotten lives of those who remain living in their homes during protracted urban wars, this debut play from an exciting new playwright asks how far people will go to preserve a sense of normality, in the face of unimaginable horror.

Part of the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea's Nour Festival of Arts, a celebration of the very best in contemporary Middle Eastern and North African arts and culture.

Playwright Carmen Nasr is British-Lebanese, grew up in Beirut, and then moved to London five years ago to study and pursue a career in playwriting. This is her first play.

Monday, 3 November 2014 at 7.30pm

A Film About Someone You Love by Chris Thompson. Directed by Robert Hastie.

Sophie can’t work out why one of her daughters went out one morning and never came back. The rejection is taking its toll – Sophie is on the brink of losing her shit and has been signed off work for locking herself in the stationery cupboard. Her other daughter, Ellie, hasn’t left (more’s the pity) and has invited round her fiancé, Monday, and her best friend, Adam, to practice the first dance for her upcoming wedding. Monday’s got the dinner on, and the doorbell goes. Could this be the night the errant daughter sees sense and comes back home to Croydon? You can’t choose your family, but you can sure as hell f***k them up if you want to. Urgent, acerbic and sometimes painful, this is a corrosive comedy about self-obsession and what happens when someone stops loving you.



Playwright Chris Thompson is Channel 4 Playwright-in-Residence at the Finborough Theatre, where his debut play Carthage premiered earlier this year. Subsequent theatre includes Albion (Bush Theatre). Following an attachment at the Royal Court Theatre in 2014, Chris was invited to join their most recent Summer Group, whilst in 2013 he took part in the Kudos/ Bush initiative. In his previous career, Chris was a social worker. 



Director Robert Hastie returns to the Finborough Theatre where his previous productions include Chris Thompson’s critically acclaimed Carthage (the first reading of which he also directed for Vibrant 2012 – A Festival of Finborough Playwrights), and the first production in over 40 years of John McGrath's Events While Guarding the Bofors Gun. Theatre includes My Night with Reg (Donmar Warehouse) and the UK premiere of Sunburst by Tennessee Williams, as part of The Hotel Plays for Defibrillator at the Holborn Grange Hotel. Associate Direction includes Sixty-Six Books which opened the new Bush Theatre in which Robert directed the world premieres of In The Land of Uz by Neil LaBute, The Middle Man by Anthony Weigh, David and Goliath by Andrew Motion, Snow In Sheffield by Helen Mort and A Lost Expression by Luke Kennard. Robert was also Associate Director of Much Ado About Nothing, starring David Tennant and Catherine Tate (Wyndham's Theatre).

All for One by Henry Darke. Directed by Anna Marsland.

Huck, 38, decides to squat in a Cornish holiday home to make a political stand. But is he a fierce revolutionary, or a bum that wants his name in the paper? When arch nemesis and local surf God Darren Kashmarick appears on the scene intent on sabotaging Huck's plan, a political battle becomes a local grudge going back thirty years. Both men will stop at nothing to outdo each other. The local surf championships are coming up and seemingly happy-go-lucky pillar of the community, Daz, turns out to be a man with a lot to prove. There are sharks in the water – and they bite. Set in a disenfranchised community in Cornwall, One For All is about man’s struggle to feel significant.

Playwright Henry Darke had his first piece of writing, a one-act play, Highfliers included in the Royal Court Young Playwrights Season, and was subsequently selected as one of 'The Royal Court 50' by Plymouth Theatre Royal.

His second short film Big Mouth, also filmed in Cornwall, on 35mm, was long-listed for a BAFTA and won Best Film at the Brief Encounters Film Festival. Henry also directed Hooked for Channel 4's 'Coming Up' series. He is a Screen International 'Star of Tomorrow' and has feature films in development with The Bureau Film Company and Pico Pictures.

Shangri-La by Amy Ng. Directed by Simon Dormandy.

Bunny, an ethnic minority tour guide in China, struggles to break free from Western travellers determining and defining her life.

Apophis by Steven Hevey. Directed by Caitlin McLeod.

When a close group of friends gather to observe Venus begin her transit across the face of the sun, little did they expect they would ever come face to face with a very different type of Venus – a fast talking, hard drinking working-class Mum. From a world very different to their own, and with the clouds conspiring to block their view, they struggle to connect not only with each other, but themselves. Yet when an unexpected bomb of a guest arrives, it’s not long before they soon do – only not in the way they had planned. A play about life, love, the universe and everything that’s in it (well almost), and how no matter how many times you mess up in life, you always get a second chance. Don’t you?

Playwright Steven Hevey is a Playwright on Attachment at the Finborough Theatre. He is also under commission by Old Vic New Voices, and he was recently announced as the seventh writer to be supported by OffWestEnd.com’s Adopt a Playwright Award.

The Komagata Maru Incident by Sharon Pollock. Directed by Vik Sivalingam.

A UK premiere commemorating the 100th anniversary of a true story. May 1914. The Komagata Maru – a boatload of Indian immigrants – docks in Vancouver Harbour. Using laws designed to keep out immigrants of only Asian origin, passengers are refused permission to land despite right of entry to Canada, guaranteed by India’s membership in the British Empire. For two months, it’s a funfair on the docks, while those aboard suffer as supplies – including food and water – are denied. T.S. Master of Ceremonies creates a Carnival Circus to reveal and revel in the political, legal and racist skirmishes in courts, parliament and the street. His sideshow skills come into play as he manipulates and manoeuvres Immigration Officer William Hopkinson; Evy, madam of a brothel; Sophie, a lazy but ambitious prostitute; Georg, a recent immigrant, eager to get ahead; and a Sikh woman and child, the only woman among 376 men on the Komagata Maru.

Chicken Dust by Ben Weatherill. Directed by Suba Das.

A chicken farm in rural England. New boy Tim has just arrived for his first shift. The job is pretty simple: grab chickens seven at a time by their legs and ram them into cages for shipping. All of this in the dark, stomping around in ankle deep chicken shit, muck and mud. His teammates are old-timers, with cigarettes dangling from their lips and pantyhose up their arms to protect their skin. Feathers cling to clothes. A thick film of brown dust cakes clothing and faces. This band of survivors don't want much: just to stay in the countryside, catch the chickens, and earn the best living they can.

But the chickens are dying, rotting from the inside out like hot fruit just hours after they arrive. As disease spreads and pressure mounts, enter Oscar, the meticulous poultry inspector. Suddenly, the farmers are forced to fight to hold on to the little they have left. But at what cost?


Playwright Ben Weatherill trained at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, and was part of the Royal Court Theatre’s Young Writer's Programme. Ben is currently the Literary Manager at the Old Red Lion Theatre, as well as Playwright-in-Residence with Curve Theatre, Leicester.

Fifty Pairs of Unworn Shoes by Louise Monaghan. Directed by Alex Marker.

Lifelong friends Eva and Angharad meet at a condemned primary school where fifty children died. Heavily pregnant, Eva is staging a sit-in to prevent the bulldozers moving in, but Angharad, who lives opposite the school, agrees with the authorities that the building must come down. With the river threatening to flood the building and the arrival of Eva’s baby imminent, emotions run high, forcing the women to confront the past and think about the future.

Come Home Badger Gash by Paul Roberts. Directed by David Mercatali.

When Charles 'Badger' Gash returns to his childhood home in the North East, all he wants to do is restart his life, pick up those pieces and put things back together. However, his over bearing mother, a reckless pastor, and his violent, vengeance obsessed brother Billy have other plans. And towering above it all - the shadow of Jackie Prentice. Come Home, Badger Gash is a black comedy about small town grudges, personal imprisonment and family.

Playwright Paul Roberts trained as a screenwriter. Come Home, Badger Gash was runner up in the 2014 PapaTango Award. This is the first part of a trilogy of tales, being continued by A Bairn Born Wrong. Theatre includes Pink Confetti, which was longlisted for the Bruntwood Prize, and shortlisted for Hightide and the RedPlanet Prize in 2013, and A Black Heart of Petty Malice which won Soho Theatre's Westminster Prize.

Director David Mercatali returns to the Finborough Theatre where he directed the world premiere of Anders Lustgarten’s Black Jesus and Papatango prize-winner Coolatully. He won a Fringe First for his production of Philip Ridley's Dark Vanilla Jungle (which transferred to the Soho Theatre) and was nominated for the Evening Standard Outstanding Newcomer Award for his production of Tender Napalm. Other theatre includes the world premiere of Timberlake Wertenbaker's Our Ajax, Johnny Got His Gun and Feathers in the Snow (Southwark Playhouse), Sochi 2014 (Hope Theatre), Someone to Blame (King's Head Theatre), Moonfleece (Riverside Studios and Tour), People's Day (Pleasance London), Runners the Return (Underbelly at the Edinburgh Festival), Weights and Paint Over (Blue Elephant Theatre).

Picture Ourselves in Latvia by Ross Howard. Directed by Alex Thorpe.

A contemporary comedy on contemporary England. Desires are suppressed and aspirations thwarted for both the staff and patients of a psychiatric ward. Orderly Oliver pines for Margaret Thatcher. Dr Rupert wants Nurse Whitehall who wants Dr Rupert. But Dr Rupert and his wife are trying for a baby and Nurse Whitehall who is also married has just returned from maternity leave. As for the patients, Duncan secretly loves Anna who secretly loves Martin who openly loves no one. Both a love story and a modern allegory of the state, Picture Ourselves in Latvia confronts the impossibility of categorising people as either sane or insane.

Director Alex Thorpe returns to the Finborough Theatre following the 50th anniversary production of Michael Hastings’ Lee Harvey Oswald: A Far Mean Streak of Independence Brought on by Negleck. He is currently one of the Assistant Directors on Shakespeare’s Globe’s World Tour of Hamlet.

This Heaven by Nakkiah Lui. Directed by Laura McCluskey.

An Australian Aboriginal family at the breaking point of oppression, loss, love and anger. Sometimes you need to push. Sissy Gordon’s father died in custody at Mount Druitt Police Station. The cops got a fine, Sissy’s family got $9,000 and no-one is allowed to speak about it. Sissy is about to become a lawyer, but tonight, lawyers and the law are beside the point. Tonight the night is dirty and heavy, and the moon is swollen and bright. Everyone knows that on nights like this things happen. Here, the streets and parks of Mount Druitt are turned into a fierce public forum, where the essential matters of what is right and what is wrong, what is good and what is bad are up for grabs. This Heaven poses the question: does doing nothing make you as complicit as the perpetrators?



Playwright Nakkiah Lui is a Gamillario and Torres Strait Islander woman. She is currently Playwright-in-Residence at Belvoir Theatre, Sydney, where her debut play This Heaven opened the 2013 downstairs season and was an instant hit, with a sell-out production that was extended twice. Nakkiah was previously Artist-in-Residence at Griffin Theatre Company. Her other writing work includes My Dreaming, Our Awakening (the first radio play on ABC Radio National programme Awaye), I Should Have Told You Before We Made Love (That I’m Black) (You Are Here Festival), Stho Sthexy (MKA Melbourne) and The Traditional Owners of Death (Bondi Feast for Rock Surfers Theatre Company). Nakkiah also wrote and directed From Drag King to Law Queen and BabyGirl (Chauvel Cinema, ABC and Colourise Festival). In 2012, Nakkiah was the first recipient of The Dreaming Award from The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island Arts Board of the Australia Council and the inaugural recipient of the Balnaves Foundation Indigenous Playwright award. Nakkiah was also the recipient of the Malcolm Robertson Prize and recently received a Green Room Award for the Sisters Grimm production Sovereign Wife (Melbourne Theatre Company). This year, Nakkiah will make her television debut in Black Comedy (ABC and Scarlett Pictures), a new comedy series she has co-written and stars in. Nakkiah is also a young leader in the Australian Aboriginal community and has contributed to The Guardian, been a featured panellist during Sydney Writers Festival and has appeared on The Drum (ABC). 

Director Laura McCluskey is also a playwright and directed her own work Cake and Congo (Theatre503) and Nina and Shaz (Brockley Jack Theatre and a London tour for Black History Month to Rich Mix, Drill Hall and Tara Arts). Direction includes The Wing by Clara Brennan as part of Theatre Uncut. Assistant Direction includes Been So Long by Che Walker (The Young Vic) and Gone Too Far by Bola Agbaje (Royal Court Theatre), where she was also education manager. Laura is also education manager at Clean Break, a theatre company that works with women affected by the criminal justice system, where she recently worked with playwright Stacey Gregg on an ensemble piece.

1984 by Satinder Chohan. Directed by Chris White.

1984. England. Seventeen-year-old Liverpool fan Tarno is coming of age to the beats of bhangra and Madonna, the miners’ strike and the Sikh independence struggle in India. Dad supports the pro-Khalistanis, one brother fights the National Front after school, the other wants a flash Ford Cortina, while Mum arranges his marriage to a Punjabi village girl, nagging Tarno to make chapattis. Seeking her own truth and freedom in worlds under siege, Tarno has to kick against the men at home – and Maggie Thatcher and Indira Gandhi outside.
