This June we’re taking to the road once again to visit some amazing venues across Coventry & Warwickshire with our rehearsed readings showcase – Belgrade Theatre Unplugged.
This is a fantastic opportunity to experience extracts from our forthcoming season, and from our programme of Community & Education work, in a series of stunning locations across the region.
Belgrade Theatre Unplugged gives audiences a unique insight into a production in rehearsal at the very earliest stage. There won’t be any props or costumes and the cast may still have the scripts in their hands – these are stripped back performances, theatre “unplugged”.
Belgrade Theatre, First Floor Restaurant
