UNDEREXPOSED

These plays explore the Underexposed theme from many different perspectives: Some more serious and others more light-hearted, the vastly varying voices of the contributory writers will have you recognising, questioning and in many cases laughing out loud at the preconceptions that you never really thought you might have.

Reviews

 
Exciting talent on show.

‘Real variety and some exciting talent on show in this tightly orchestrated evening….brilliant comedic performances and insightful writing.’ 

— James Price, Everything Theatre.

They shake us. And stir us.

‘Fantastic….This collection of scenes, captures that old familiar Kafkaism, wielding an axe on the frozen sea within our souls. They shake us. And stir us. And I look forward to more challenges from Underexposed Theatre in future.’

— Pete Lawler, The American Londoner.

An enjoyable, often deeply thoughtful evening of theatre

‘An enjoyable, often deeply thoughtful evening of theatre. It feels like a cross between a rather good actors’ showcase and a book of short stories but is none the worse for that.’

— Susan Elkin, Sardines Magazine..
