“Just because something’s small doesn’t mean it can’t be beautiful. Or experimental, or poignant or thought provoking. For proof of this, look at the Miniaturists” Natasha Tripney.
The Miniaturists, one of the country’s most popular and longstanding short-play nights, celebrate their fiftieth ever show with a line-up of new short-form work from some of the most exciting voices currently writing for the British stage. For this landmark staging, writers include Sarah Sigal (World Enough and Time, Park Theatre), Nathan Wood (Ham, Roundhouse), Isley Lynn (Lean, Tristan Bates Theatre) and Dan Davies (Is Anything Broken?, Tristan Bates Theatre).
The Miniaturists was founded in 2005 by writer Stephen Sharkey as a platform for young writers, directors and performers to explore ideas and see their work staged without a larger production. Staged every couple of months, each night sees five writers presenting a new piece of work in Arcola Theatre’s main space. Since its inception, the night has become an established part of London’s theatre landscape, staging work by such established writers as Stephen Jeffreys, David Eldridge and Steve Waters as well as emerging talent including Phoebe Éclair-Powell and Miran Hadzic.
The Miniaturists is curated and produced by Will Bourdillon and Declan Feenan
