    A package of the best new short plays performed at the INK Festival.

    Now in its fourth year the 2018 line-up includes the world premiere of The Inkredible 5, a unique collaboration by a stellar cast of East Anglia’s most prolific writers, Richard Curtis, Esther Freud, Blake Morrison, Libby Purves and Steve Waters. These celebrity fans and friends of INK weave five magical tales from the same mysterious suitcase.

    This unusual piece is directed by a young East Anglian director Huw Brentnall, who makes his INK directorial debut under the watchful eye of INK’s artistic director, Julia Sowerbutts

    Three other pieces of theatre, chosen for their originality and brio, will complete this entertaining showcase of talent from the East of England.

    The Kiss, by Millie Martin, reveals a brief encounter between an MP and a model in a 1960’s hotel room which turns decidedly surreal when his wife makes an unexpected appearance.

    White Girls, by Madeleine Accalia is breath-taking stomp through the refugee crisis in Calais as witnessed by two brassy young girls, fresh out of university and brimful of middle-class cheek.

    Cold Call, by Ross Dunsmore, when a call-centre romance turns unexpectedly sour as Rob can’t explain to his irritated colleague-cum-partner exactly where he was last night.

    Age: 12+ 
    Running time: 120 minutes + 20 minute interval
