The multi-award-winning Papatango present a selection of work by Havant writers, free to attend! Join us for extracts from three new plays, followed by a short discussion with the writers, actors and director.
Fabulous Monsters by Alison Nicol
A funny and tender play about two sisters learning to support each other after the loss of their father. Sometimes magic can turn up in the most unexpected places.
The Ghost of Muhammad Ali by Ayad Andrews
Two of the greatest boxers of all time. Two icons of American culture. Two men whose rivalry was as fierce outside the ring as in it. This new play explores the relationship between Joe Frazier and Muhammad Ali, asking how ambition and loss can linger across the years.
Rat House by Drew Hewitt
14 points behind in the polls, James faces an uphill struggle for re-election. Shirin wants him to stay on the left of the party, but Simon suggests appealing to the right - the far right. Rat House is a fast-paced and humorous look at local politics and what it takes to stay in power.
