Rotunda's new Pay What You Will event showcases new writing for only a quid. At the end of the performance, if you think it deserves it, you can leave an extra donation (we take card as well as cash).

In for a Quid

The Rotunda theatre is proud to present a season of new writing that you can see for merely £1, and anything else you would like to give. Booking is only £1 and after the performance you’ll be given the opportunity of paying what you think deserved, if you think it deserved it. This ‘Pay What You Will’ season will showcase new writers and/or new shows that are destined for much greater things, so see them here first.


Taking Flight Festival


Taking Flight is definitely ON this Buxton Fringe, thanks to funding support from Arts Council England.


Presenting three exciting new family friendly short plays culminated from Red Dragonfly's nationwide search to find new and emerging writers from Britain's East Asian, South Asian and South-East Asian communities - Three stunning new stories for the stage – stories that could only have been made in Britain…


Khon by Michael Phong Le

The Vietnamese have a word for bending the rules... it's called 'khon' – but Kevin is far more British than Vietnamese, and he has never really been any good at being khon, so when the Police come knocking at the door...


Clarissa By Lekha Desai Morrison

Jasmin is getting married and this weekend she is entertaining her prospective mother-in-law for the first time, but she fears her favourite spicy sambhar won't impress the middle-class palette of the notorious Clarissa Cartwright. But while she is worrying over whether she is a Jamie person or a Heston person Clarissa shows up on her doorstep with a disturbing request.


Taylor Swift's Dog by Samuel Daram

Yazmina wants to become a writer and Jia is a literary agent on the lookout for the next big thing, but just who is going to be the new JK Rowling? And what has Taylor Swift's Dog got to do with it? An insightful satire into the politics and prejudices of publishing.
