Root - Stage Reading
CB2 Basement - 17th January 2016
Root is an original one act play, written by Atticus Orsborn. We produced a reading of this work to gauge the development stage it was in. Each audience member was provided with feedback sheets and all contributed to the continuing evolution of Root. The piece is still being worked on and we expect to give it a full production in the coming future.
