The evening is in aid of Acting For Others, which provides financial and emotional support for artists throughout the performing industry which is so important in the current climate with so many theatres closing for good.

Directors for the evening are Rebecca Marangos, Annabelle Hollingdale, Glenn Gaunt, Ben Woodhall & Richard Neale.
After enjoying the five short plays, Denise Welch will lead a panel discussion on what is next for the arts industry, how we can continue to stay creative, and be initiative in our approach to creating work.
Glenn Gaunt (Gaunt &Son Productions), Artistic Director and Curator of the evening has said; “I saw a need during this time to bring some unity in a project that is by the arts for the arts during a pandemic which is having a profound effect on our industry. I didn’t want to do a pre-recorded show, because the risk of live theatre is what is so exciting, and bringing that high stakes element to the evening was really important to us. I have been blown away by the response it has received from everyone so far.’’ Sam Butters, (Tectum Theatre) added ‘’The exceptional talent we have secured is breathtaking, combined with these bespoke plays leaves us really excited for an exceptional night of fundraising for a truly worthy cause.”
Tickets cost £5.00, and all profits from the evening will be donated to Acting For Others. To book tickets please visit www.gauntandson.com/Five-4-Five or to find out more about Acting For Others visit
