THE Princess Theatre Company is set to present its first annual Festival of New Writing and Drama.

Four plays will be performed over April 4 and 5 to introduce the company, which was established in October 2013.

Kim Cook, from the Princess Theatre Company said: “We are really excited to introduce the company by performing four plays, by different writers from the Princess Playwright Group, in our first festival.”

Friday night sees the two act play 'Kiss me Donkey' by Max Taylor.

Saturday kicks off with two short plays. Does Ann take the money and run in 'Dead Liberty' by Kim Cook, and will Rhiannon get her man in Rebecca Strickland's 'Happily ever................'?

The one act black comedy, 'Paradise View' by Jo Backhouse shows how a bizarre incident changes the behaviour of the ultimate dysfunctional family.
