Join us for your choice of seven sensational pieces of work created by our Homegrown group made up of Nottingham's most exciting young writers, directors and performers.

Having spent a year training with Nottingham Playhouse, the Messy Unity Festival is their chance to show the world what they can do. Come and support the future of theatre with our 30 brilliant young theatre-makers.

The performances on this evening are:

Haus of Liquidation
Up and down the country gay bars and queer spaces are closing down while more young people than ever are identifying as LGBTQIA+. What does this mean for a group of housemates who are all part of the community? Part cabaret, part play, this new work by Octavia Nyombi and Jeannie Barnsley

Fractured Dreams
Through poetry and spoken word, the authentic worlds of three modern day students are uncovered. Behind the mirage of strobe lights and messy nights lie the minds of people who love passionately, feel deeply and struggle ​without mercy.
This production contains strong language and adult themes.

Before His Light Was Gone
An exploration of an emperor’s experience of loss, both of love and of power. This new monologue by Homegrown writer Ali Rowe imagines the missing chapter from the oldest story in the world – a Japanese masterpiece.
