Mark Lindow presents the fifth edition of Untold Stories.

This two-day celebration of new work by established writers comes to the Arcola as part of SLAM Festival.

On both nights, see scratch performances of 7 exciting new plays – exploring long distance relationships, the generation gap, truth, lies and identity.

The plays being performed for Untold Stories are as follows:

Bakersfield by Chris Udoh

Goulburn by Mike Shephard
The condemned cell at Goulburn Prison, New South Wales, 1956. Newell receives her last visitor.
