to whom it may concern
'To Whom It May Concern' is an emerging writers night produced and directed by Salt Circle Productions. The one-hour show consists of monologues around different themes. Tonight’s theme is 'power dynamics' and will be performed by brilliant London based actors.
This is an evening of letters that were never sent. A night of connection, revolution and power as we hear the voices of 'us', the general public that is often overlooked.
