It's been a busy summer so far at the EP camp with last month's Bare Essentials and work beginning on our next productions - yes that is another 's' you see there! We also celebrated our 4th birthday with the most unnecessary amount of people to blow out a candle ever! Read on...

'A Million Things' by Tracy Harris

Our Bare Essentials relaunch was a rousing success, with 6 short theatrical pieces being staged by 4 directors and 15 actors, in 3 venues! Thank you to all who came and packed out each venue - we were so thrilled to see how engaged you were with the work and how deafening your applause was! Here are some snippets of our very positive reviews alongside some photos:

'Drink the Kool-Aid' by Dusty Wilson

"Minimal staging...maximum polish. A great mix of work, Encompass achieved a very entertaining evening." - London Reviews >>

'Going Viral' by Brandon Crose

"Admirable...a great chance to see a good selection of theatre audiences possibly wouldn’t be exposed to." - Bargain Theatreland >>

'Thin-Air' by Tom Coash

"It’s great to see acting being focused on rather than masked by gimmicks. If you like new writing then this is for you!" - Everything Theatre >>

'You Are All I See' by Dan Horrigan
