A ONE-TIME ONLY EVENT FEATURING NEW SHORT RADIO PLAYS PERFORMED LIVE WITH AN ONSTAGE BAND.

We’ve invited pioneering Leeds-based theatre mavericks Slung Low down to help open our new season. Slung Low have run these fun and informal 15 Minutes Live events for grown-ups for many years in a room above Britain’s oldest working men’s club and now, for the very first time, they are transporting their crew to London for this special family version in partnership with the Unicorn.

Together we’ve commissioned some brilliant writers to create new 15-minute plays responding to the theme of ‘The Future’ which will be performed radio-play style with onstage sound effects, live music and occasional audience interaction. You’ll be guided through this riotous afternoon by our lively comperes and there will be live music, bingo and some free treats in-between performances.
