Unknown Drama
Want to know the kind of plays we do at Unknown? We've cast our current play, but if you'd like to know more about us get in touch, and maybe come along to one of our rehearsals.

See the Unknown Drama page for more info.

We'll be auditioning again at the end of January.

This is The Unknown Theatre Company performing the opening number from Dance of the Dragon at the World Festival of Amateur Theatre in Monaco in 2005.

Many of the cast went on on to study singing or acting at drama schools and music college and are now working as professional performers.
