The Show Must Go On
international playwriting festival, fairfield halls, warehouse phoenix


For thirty-five years the Warehouse Theatre entertained its visitors with fantastic shows for all ages. It was also a haven for playwrights, who were given the chance to get established by showing off their talents in the International Playwriting Festival.

Now, however, the future of the Warehouse Theatre is uncertain because Croydon Council withdrew funding last year. There is an appeal to save the theatre, but for now, it remains closed.

But as they say, the show must go on. The International Playwriting Festival will continue for another year thanks to Warehouse Phoenix. On the 29th & 30th June at Fairfield Halls, four special performances will showcase work from forty of the best actors, directors and authors. Winning entries from the contest will include a play from the BRIT School annual Strawberry Picking season, international productions from Italy and Cyprus, and a surprise UK special.

The shows are at 5pm & 7pm and cost 7 each. Alternatively, you could buy a day ticket for 18 or weekend ticket for 32, which includes a special supper dish during the intervals.
