The Finborough's Winter Season concentrates on unique rediscoveries with works from the 1930s, 1940s, 1970s and 1980s including the long overdue rediscovery of playwright James Bridie, one of the West End's most popular dramatists of the 1930s and 1940s. New writing is represented by the eighth consecutive year of Vibrant 2016 - A Festival of Finborough Playwrights featuring our usual eclectic selection of staged readings by UK and international playwrights, developed, nurtured or championed by the Finborough Theatre. This year's festival also includes new filmmaking from the Earl's Court Film Festival, and the European premiere of the After Orlando International Theatre Action, a collection of 70 short plays in response to the massacre at Pulse Nightclub in Orlando, Florida, in June 2016.

Formed in 1985, the group has become something of a national institution in the UK.
