To Reading University!

Regulation 18B-No Free Man has been invited by Reading University's School of Law and the Film, Theatre & Television Department for two performances, 28 & 29 October 2016 at Minghella Studios. Panel discussions will follow both performances, with a lecture by the playwright at the law school in the afternoon prior to the performance on Friday 28th October. We are delighted to bring our play to a British university for the first time. More details will follow on these and other 2016 performances and venues.


We closed out Watlington performances with full house on Saturday 13 June in the historic Town Hall, with wide-ranging interesting discussions both evenings there among our audiences and panelists.

As many of our panelists and audience members have commented on the close association between the themes of Regulation 18B-No Free Man and key principles of Magna Carta, our next city (Windsor on 26-27 June) has key importance to the play, this month being the 800th anniversary celebration of Magna Carta, and those celebrations being centered in nearby Runnymede.

Play Off to a Fantastic Start!

Panelists and audience members are calling Regulation 18B-No Free Man a "Moving and Powerful" play, "A Must See," with themes so "Relevant" to issues being faced in the UK today. Many audience members have expressed surprise, as they expected a courtroom drama or scenes from the House of Lords, but instead are drawn in by a "gripping" drama which is "intense," "personal," and "intimate."

First US Media Coverage on Play
