Off Cut Roots Launch
Big Changes Ahead for Off Cut in 2013
After remaining a little quiet lately, we are delighted to announce a big change for us this year.
Over the past four years, we have been proud to watch Off Cut grow into one of London’s biggest, liveliest and most fruitful short play festivals. With an enthusiastic eye to the future, we aim to bed Off Cut into the theatre ecology, establishing it as an important discoverer and nurturer of new writing, directing and acting talent.
To that end, we are doing a bit of cutting back, making 2013 our fallow year before returning with a bigger, more exciting festival in 2014.
This year, we are replacing the full-blown, 28-play festival with Off Cut Roots.
What is more, we are thrilled to reveal that the project will be run in collaboration with the renowned Theatre 503.
With this much smaller, much more intensive event, we will be giving the opportunity for two undiscovered playwrights to have their work developed over the summer by Off Cut, Theatre 503, and a group of industry professionals, for performance at Theatre 503 for a week in August.
And all in the spirit of open, honest and friendly collaboration.

Off Cut Roots: Dig Deeper.
There will be no Off Cut Festival in 2013.
The Roots project will run instead this year, with a bigger and bolder festival already in the pipeline for 2014. More details on that towards the end of the year.
