The Read Not Dead ground rules are simple. Actors rehearse the play on a Sunday morning and present it, script in hand, to an audience later that afternoon in the intimate, candlelit Sam Wanamaker Playhouse.
The performances are instinctive, adrenaline driven and inventive. Actors and audiences alike share in the excitement of reviving these forgotten plays that definitely deserve to be Read Not Dead.
The play champions the plight of refugees and depicts the May Day Riots of 1517 and the eventual demise of Thomas More. Heavily censored for fear of inciting further violence, the play wasn’t printed until the 19th century.
