Welcome to Ten-Past-Ten Theatre!

Ten-Past-Ten is the Speakeasy Session’s drama slot. TPT is a reserved space, the last of the eight, 15-minute slots at each of our spoken word events, held specially for drama or spoken word performance.  See below to book.


Short plays, monologues, scenes, experimental theatre – solo performances, troupes, groups, theatre collectives – all are welcome.

How does it work?  


Props will need to be light and portable to be taken on-stage, just prior to performance.


See pictures below. Platform or ‘End On’ type stage. No curtain, access is via free-standing step-ladder. Stage dimensions 12’ wide at the widest point, 8’6” deep. 

If access is a consideration, there is also a small space in front of the stage at floor level, suitable for a space-restricted performance. 

Limited lighting and sound facilities. 

Large projector screen at back of stage. 


The Speakeasy Sessions take place on the last Tuesday of each month. 8.00pm.
