Opening 7th February we have four nights at the King's Court Theatre, each with two or three short plays - poignant comedies, stories of love, life, war and mystery. There's something for everyone! Our Youth night on Friday is particularly exciting as we have the Youth Arts Centre performing Cinderella Kids, a new take on the popular fairytale and The Free9, a challenging and topical story of orphans from North Korea in search of a new life in South Korea.

Tickets are £10 per night / £5 concessions or £30 for a full festival pass / £15 concessions. For more details call the Box Office on 0333 666 3366 or visit
