For our fourth ACANTEEN residency – and our first at Foyles Bookshop – Mad Apple are proud to present four new plays by commissioned local writers.
The Night Riviera is the name of one of only two overnight train services in the UK. Departing London at 2345hrs, it travels to Penzance in Cornwall. Its history is intertwined with the British romantic vision of railway travel, and conjures up the ghosts of all of the writers who wrote about drama, mystery, crime and more upon the rails.
The challenge for our writers is simple…write a one-act play based around this historic and oft-taken journey. We have seen the ideas that have been developed and we like what we see!
‘The Night Riviera’ will run at Foyles Bookshop, Chelmsford between 22nd and 24th March 2018 and you can book tickets online now!
