Word 2012 Festival

We're proud to be part of Islington's Word 2012 Festival, a celebration of all things written and read across the borough (11-31 May).

Throughout the festival we're publishing a 100 word play a day online, each one written by a young member of our Speakeasy group.

We're also producing a curious flashmob gathering of young readers on Highbury Fields and a hybrid play-reading/hide and seek game in Islington Central Library.

Current & Future Productions

2011-12 Season

Islington Community Theatre exists to make brave, innovative theatre.

Our work throughout 2012 is inspired by the idea of time.  By what came before and what comes next.  By heritage, legacy and the thought that this year, this week, this second could define our lives forever.

Our work this year includes In All the Minutes Ever, a new piece created by 30 young people about time and memory, Before Now Next, an ambitious play created in just 25 hours, and What Will Survive of Us, five new short plays by five incredibly exciting emerging playwrights.

We're also working on a new full-length commission and various other projects - keep your eyes peeled here and on our mailing list for more information.

Word 2012: Read-In

 

If you passed Highbury Fields on Saturday 12 May, you might have noticed something a little bit different...
 
A multitude of young people emerging from Central Library.  Heads held high.  Hands by their sides.  A single book tucked safely under their right arm.
 
No-one knows how they all got there.  Or who they were.  Or why they came.  But they were there, determined to take their place in the sunshine and do just one thing.  Read.
 
A curious flashmob event to celebrate the start of the Word festival, co-produced by the All Change 'B' Project for young women and Islington Community Theatre and supported by Oberon Books.
