Writers were challenged to respond to this question and interrogate ideas of Britishness, language and identity.

This is a hugely pertinent subject – immigration, nationalism and independence all seem to make news headlines on a daily basis. We were keen to see how writers living in Britain would interpret and grapple with this question. From the response, a carefully selected collection of short plays emerged and found homes with their own directors and casts. Each play has an identity and a sense of completeness but together the plays come together as a show – a collaborative piece that explores the question, Do you Speak British?

About the company

Short Back And Sides is a project questioning the lack of diversity in theatre. Our approach is to give voices, both quiet and loud, the spotlight through small but perfectly formed plays.
