MicroPlays is an Arts Council England funded R&D project to make digital theatre. Five groundbreaking playwrights were asked to address the theme of “cultural polarization”. Each play is under five minutes and is shared for the first time at an in person rehearsed reading at Courtyard Hereford on 18 June 2019.

These plays will be performed and filmed on location in Herefordshire in Autumn 2019. They will then go on a “digital tour” of Herefordshire and the UK through a digital advertising and social media campaign coordinated by a industry-leading digital strategist.

'Microplays' will be directed by Open Sky's co-founder Lisle Turner bringing his film-making skills to our theatre-making for the first time.
