Chester Micro Plays bring a world of new short plays entitled Missing Pieces to The Compass in Chester on Thursday, November 27.

Chester Micro Plays exist to bring new writing and performance to the heart of Chester and began over a year ago.

A group of local playwrights, inspired by the idea of short plays, began working with like-minded actors and a director.

Rebecca Sowray, local writer and co-ordinator of the group, said: “What we saw was amazing grass roots support for the arts in Chester. We wanted to work with local actors to bring new writing to the stage.”

The group’s first production on July 24 created lots of interest in micro theatre and played to a packed venue.

The next round of short plays, Missing Pieces, has been written as part of a workshop process, developed under the guidance of director in residence, John Young. Each of the eight pieces is less than 10 minutes and shows the audience another world.

John Young said: “We were really pleased with the response to this exciting form back in July. It allows the actors to bring a huge range of characters to life in just one evening.”

Each play has its own story to tell and will be performed ‘script-in-hand’ by a team of local actors who have worked closely with John to delight the audience.

Tickets details and times for the performance are on Chester Micro Plays website. This performance will be upstairs at The Compass, Visit for details.
