A canon of county plays

The idea is to create a kind of theatrical record of life in each of the 48 english counties by commissioning a writer from each to create the play they wish which springs from that county. Then make them available ‘rights’ free for performance by amateurs, schools and professionals. The thought is that some might start as alliances with a particular theatre – say Chichester and Sussex – and each would be called simply ‘the Wiltshire play’. About £750k
