StrikeUp at the Rising Sun

StrikeUp theatre will perform three new comedy plays in Scratch night at the Rising Sun Arts Centre on Silver Street on Saturday 7 December at 7.30pm.

The theatre group launched a monthly new-writing workshop at the Rising Sun Arts Centre in September called StrikeUp Forum Theatre. This produced the three new 15-minute plays that make up Scratch night. They also plan to share news about their spring 2020 Silent Generation tour.

Silent Generation was written by Joe Marsh using oral histories of Reading residents, a project that involved the Whitley Community Museum. The play was performed at South Street Arts Centre in spring 2019.

Doors open to StrikeUp Scratch Night at the Rising Sun Arts Centre at 7.30pm on 7 December and the performance starts at 8pm. £5 tickets are available at the door and proceeds go towards StrikeUp’s Silent Generation project.
