Event details

Students from University of Birmingham’s MPhil Playwriting Studies course present five short plays inspired by society, community and current events performed in site-specific spaces within the MAC building.

Where from here? by Jonathan Lloyd

On his Return by Abigail Rahman

The Reality of Faith by Lucy Hayward

Emergency Exit by Martin Gulbis

Acceptance by Madeleine Levy

From the clearing out of the family shed, to a mother waiting for her son’s return, to a world where drugs are legalised, 5×5 explores questions, concerns and the ethics of modern-day society.

Performed within an hour, these five short plays give a taste of Birmingham’s new writing talent.
Come and follow the journey through the space and experience five different perspectives from the one same city.
