Papergang Matinees at The Tristan Bates

Join us for staged readings of new writing by British East Asian playwrights over three matinees. These three pieces have been selected and developed by us over the course of three months.  A different play will be presented at each matinee, including a feedback/Q&A session with the playwright after each performance.
