Marlowe Roar

A scratch sharing of exciting new ideas, conversations and work-in-progress performances by Kent writers, artists and theatre-makers.

Have you ever wondered how theatre is made? Here is your chance to get a glimpse into the early stages of the creative process.

We’ve been working with nine exciting regional writers and theatre-makers, chosen from over 60 submissions to our ROAR Open Call for performance ideas responding to the tumult of our times and the words of Kent-born playwright Aphra Behn:
“A brave world: full of religion, knavery and change, we shall shortly see better days.”

After a week of research and development with The Marlowe, our nine artists and companies will be sharing their work at an early stage in its development, giving you a fascinating insight into the beginnings of the theatre process. The work you’ll see will include play readings, installations, live art and immersive theatre – giving you nine very different theatre experiences.

We also want to know what you think – so there will be plenty of informal opportunities to share your responses to what you have seen with our theatre-makers and help them develop their work further.

Your ticket to Marlowe Roar is a day pass, allowing you to choose which works you would like to see. There is a capacity limit on some of the performance spaces and access will be on a first come first served basis.

A full schedule for the sharing will be available on our website closer to the event.
