Chickenshed’s season of new writing returns to our Studio Theatre with theatrical monologues and duologues all based around the theme of Eunoia.

Drawn from a range of diverse people and voices, expect the unexpected as we present a uniquely varied programme, demonstrating the versatility of this most simple theatrical form.

‘The last time I went to Chickenshed, I saw a performance featuring a cast of hundreds. It says much for the breadth of work being staged at this essential venue that it can also grip the attention of its largely young audience with just a single performer on a sparse stage.’  4**** The Stage
