For the first time, The Miniaturists heads underground for a special edition event showcasing writers from the VAULT programme. Curated with the VAULT team, this is your chance to catch some of 2019's brightest talent ... in miniature!
The Miniaturists is the regular curated writer-led event dedicated to bringing you short, exhilarating, perfectly formed plays. Each show is packed with work from an exciting array of new and established playwrights all of whom see the short play as a form in itself rather than a means to an end.
We love the short play format and believe that a play in miniature can deliver a sucker punch like nothing else. We also like to think the mix makes for a night as unpredictable and varied as life itself... and we’ve been making short work of it since 2005!
“Just because something’s small doesn’t mean it can’t be beautiful. Or experimental, or poignant or thought-provoking. For proof of this, look to the Miniaturists“ – Natasha Tripney
"The Miniaturists ... may well change the way new writing is produced." - Lyn Gardner
The Miniaturists is one of London's longest running new writing nights, officially launched in 2005. Every show is packed with 5 original pieces from an array of talented writers, new and established. Each piece is no longer than twenty minutes, and the dizzying mix makes every event as various and unpredictable as life itself.
