Small Things Theatre presents a very special Night Of Small Things in aid of UN Women’s HeForShe campaign. Full of fun, frivolity and fearless talent, showcasing some of the best poets, playwrights, performers, musicians and comedians, A Night Of Small Things is London’s finest variety night. And this time it’s using the arts to put a spotlight on gender equality and female empowerment. Come join us for a series of stand ups, intimate musical sets, pint sized sections of poetry and short gems of theatrical brilliance all providing their unique insight into how we shift culture, raise awareness and create real change for girls and women all over the world. Proceeds from the night will go to UN Women’s countless projects worldwide.

Small Things Theatre champions new writing and emerging artists. As well as Night of Small Things, they have produced sell out Edinburgh 2015 show The Stolen Inches (**** The Stage, **** Broadway Baby, **** A Younger Theatre), No Place For A Woman at Theatre 503(***** StageTalkUK, **** The Stage, **** The Upcoming) and most recently A Gym Thing at The Pleasance, Edinburgh 2017 (**** The Scotsman). Most of their work begins life as a short segment at A Night Of Small Things before growing in to fully fledged plays.


Interested in being involved?

Whether you are a playwright, a musician, a comedian, a poet or all of the above then get in touch.

  • Playwrights – send us a script. We like to keep each theatrical piece to 15 minute maximum. If you need help finding directors and actors then let us know and we’ll put you in touch with lots of talented people.
  • Musicians – send us a link to soundcloud or any other platform where we can hear a sample of what you do. The night is always held in a theatrical venue so its a little different to gig venues, people will sit and listen. We’ll give you guys a 15 minute slot just like the playwrights.
  • Poets – send us a sample of your poetry. We give you a 5 minute slot so a chance to read a couple of lengthy poems or several short sharp stanzas.
  • Comedians – You don’t have to send us a joke! Give us an idea of what you do, maybe a link to a video but if you don’t have this don’t worry, we’re happy to meet up and chat about doing a set. We’ll give you up to 10 minutes to roll out your material. Hats off to you too cos we couldn’t do it!
