Now in its eighth consecutive year, the multi-award-winning Finborough Theatre presents Vibrant 2016 – A Festival of Finborough Playwrights, its annual celebration of new writing, running between 30 October – 17 November 2016. This year's festival also includes the Earl's Court Film Festival 2016, and the European premiere of the After Orlando International Theatre Action, 70 short plays inspired by the Orlando nightclub shooting earlier this year. As always, this year's festival features an intriguing selection of staged readings of new works by UK and international playwrights, both established and new, discovered, developed or championed by the Finborough Theatre.

The Earl’s Court Film Festival 2016, one of the most innovative short film events in London, the Earl’s Court Film Festival returns for the second year featuring six locally shot and co-produced Earl’s Court Film Festival funded short films, as well as showings of an additional 12 external film submissions. The estimated running time of each screening will be 1 hour 30 minutes including a post-film Questions and Answers session led by Festival Producers Sean Duffy and Caroline Tod-Richardson. 

After Orlando International Theatre Action is an international playwright driven theatre action including over seventy playwrights from the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia and Africa. Plays have been specifically written and curated in response to this tragic event and will be performed across the US and in the UK throughout the autumn including readings in New York City (Rattlestick Theatre, LGBT Center, Abingdon Theatre, and HERE); Los Angeles (Theatre @ Boston Court, The Road Theatre, East West Players and EST-LA); Seattle (Forward Flux Productions and Cornish College); Portland, Oregon (Artists Repertory Theatre and Boom Arts): Washington, DC (Round House Theatre and Olney Theatre Center); Philadelphia (Philadelphia Theatre Company); Boston (Brandeis University) and many more theatres and universities across the United States and internationally.

Playwrights include both noted and emerging voices in the theatre including Israel Horovitz, Neil Labute, Anders Lustgarten, Jordan Tannahill, Caridad Svich, Lindsey Ferrentino, Stephen Sewell, and many, many, more. 

Directed by Clare Bloomer, Liz Carruthers, Robert Cavanah, Helen Donnelly, Melissa Dunne, Tommo Fowler, Sara Joyce, Jonny Kelly, Scott Le Crass, Anna Marsland, Lydia Parkerand Lotte Wakeham
