Directed by Kenn Michaels and Monty Holender

Set in the old East End, The Bespoke Overcoat centres around the afforsaid overcoat. Can an overcoat be so important? It can if you are old and cold..

The Hebrew Lesson. is set during the 'Troubles' in Ireland. What can a gunman and a Rabbi have in common? More than you would think.

The playwright, Wolf Mankowitz has a perfect ear for the rhythm of East End speech and of Dublin too ...hilarious and sad in turn and tinged throughout with poetry.

Lady Gregory's pre-1916 Easter Uprising play gently satirises the bumbling British-imposed Establishment, as shown by the trio of rural police officers assigned to apprehend a dangerous escaped freedom- fighter. 

North London Actors was started by Gareth Pilkington some 12 years ago as he wanted to bring to North London what he had been part of at Actors and Writers of London. Our actors perform script in hand in semi staged readings of old plays, plays that have been unjustly neglected and original modern plays.
