About: Vibrant! – A Festival of Finborough Playwrights

The Finborough Theatre presents a ten day season of ten new works for the stage by ten UK and international playwrights, discovered, developed or championed by the Finborough Theatre, and curated by Artistic Director Neil McPherson and the Finborough Theatre Literary Department.

Despite remaining completely unfunded, the Finborough Theatre has an unparalleled track record of discovering new playwrights who go on to become leading voices in British theatre. Under Artistic Director Neil McPherson, it has discovered some of the UK’s most exciting new playwrights including Laura Wade, James Graham, Mike Bartlett, Sarah Grochala, Jack Thorne, Joy Wilkinson, Simon Vinnicombe, Alexandra Wood, Al Smith, Nicholas de Jongh and Anders Lustgarten. It is the only theatre without public funding to be awarded the prestigious Pearson Playwriting Award bursary (2000, 2005, 2006, 2007 and 2009) as well as twice winning Pearson’s Catherine Johnson Award for Best Play written by a bursary holder.

The Finborough Theatre Literary Department was founded in 2005 and was originally run by Alexandra Wood who went on to write The Eleventh Capital at the Royal Court Theatre which won her the 2007 George Devine Award for Most Promising Playwright. Working closely with the Artistic Director, the Literary Department is now run by a vibrant young team, headed by Literary Associate writer/director Titas Halder, and Senior Reader director Eleanor Rhode.

Our Vibrant! Festival of Finborough Playwrights has been designed to introduce you to some of the fascinating voices we have nurtured, and we are particularly delighted to present some of the first plays of brand new writers in their 30s, 40s and 50s who continue to be neglected by other new writing organisations. Join us for ten days of ten new works by ten diverse vibrant new voices.
