New Commissions

Our Writer-in-residence, Carolyn Kras, recently presented her latest work 23rd May , The Subject, in a rehearsed reading at the Arts Theatre, upstairs as part of United Nations Orange Day event in aid of United Nations Trust Fund to End Violence Against Women and Rape Crisis England and Wales.

Written by Carolyn Kras
Directed by Grace Joseph 

About the play:

Princess Sophia's family is one of the most dysfunctional in history, with notoriously mad father George III, drug-addicted mother Queen Charlotte, sex addict brother Ernest, and agoraphobe sister Augusta. When Sophia is raped and fights to bring the criminal to justice, her family seeks to mastermind a cover-up of the secret for fear of losing the throne. 

This is a  new play written in residence at Selladoor Worldwide through the support of the Fullbright LUSK Award.                


In protest against the recent Stanford rape case and other similiar cases Carolyn is arranging a simultaneous reading of The Subject this Autumn. If you/your theatre/school/organisation would like to be part of this movement to raise our voices and increase awareness of sexual assault issues, email Carolyn at, to discuss how to take action.
