ELE Presents One+

ELE Group (East London & Essex Playwriting Group) presents One+ an evening of new writing from local writers in rehearsed readings performed by professional actors and director.
One+ is a new format: a one-act play specially selected for the evening preceded by a collection of new short plays written by members of the group.
ELE Group is a member-led collective of playwrights that meets monthly at Queen’s Theatre Hornchurch. The writers, and often the stories they tell, are rooted in this eastern fringe of London, Havering and south Essex.
The group was formed in 2016 following participation on a course at the Queen’s Theatre led by playwright Philip Ayckbourn. ELE Group has since regularly put on a series of well-received, often sold-out rehearsed readings on The Other Stage.
For each showcase an external professional director is appointed to read the plays submitted, provide feedback and select the best for a one-off performance in what is called a rehearsed reading with professional actors who have appeared in leading theatrical productions in London and elsewhere.
The audience is asked for short written feedback on the night and here is a selection of comments on previous performances:
“Powerful acting. Made me go cold in parts and eyes welled up towards the end”
“Very thoughtful”
“Very clever! Nice to watch a different type of play. Enjoyed it very much!”
“A good storyline left on a cliff-hanger leaving the audience in suspense”
“Highly topical – makes you think. Very promising”
“A humorous script which shows a light-hearted view of the stigma in being single. Clever twists”
