As I write, the Orange Tree has been closed for a year. It’s time to switch the lights back on. Inside/Outside will be the first time we have told stories here since March 2020.
It feels important that we reopen with new plays – by writers who have been an important part of the Orange Tree’s story over the last few years, and to new writers who we are excited to introduce to audiences. I’ve been thinking back to how these playwrights came into our lives. Together, they tell a story about how the Orange Tree has made its name as a home for new plays.
