We’re so excited to announce the plays for the Roundabout 2022 Season, which will tour around the UK from July to October.

Three brand new plays that speak urgently to our present, platforming new stories and unheard voices.

The shows will open the Roundabout at our co-producers Rose Theatre, Kingston on 11-24 July. They will then perform at Summerhall at Edinburgh Festival in August, before touring the UK to Burton-upon-Trent, North Devon, Ramsgate and Salford in September and October.
