Fast & Loose is back again for it's ninth year in Belfast and we're really excited to be heading back to the Naughton Studio for the fourth year at the Lyric.
In a 24-hour takeover of the Lyric, Accidental Theatre creates & premieres four new plays in just one day. At 9 p.m. on Friday, four writers are given a selection of random inspirations & just twelve hours to write a short play each. Then at 9 a.m. on Saturday, four directors, twelve performers and six stage crew arrive & start rehearsing each new play, which all premiere that very night, Saturday 28th November at 9 p.m. Join us for this bold & breathless experiment in playmaking.
It's an unpredictable, unique & uplifting showcase of some of the finest theatre artists working in Northern Ireland.
Embrace the unknown.

We're expanding the help and advice we can give fellow artists with a new Services programme. Have a look at our list of initial services, that we've aimed at a range of artists and tried to make as flexible and useful as possible.
Throughout our rehearsals for The Lost Martini we've been posting to give a glimpse behind the scenes of this new show as we make it. It's an unusual project and you can follow us as we get to grips with the trials of devising, rehearsing and immersing ourselves in the show. Check out the blogs here.
Accidental are helping to set up more fantastic Scratches, this month and beyond, for artists looking to explore work in-development. This fantastic format of performing fresh, experimental theatre in-progress has already been pioneered around the world and we want Belfast artists to have the chance to test out new ideas. Click here is you want to get involved.
Accidental hosted a screening of a new documentary that looks at the debate on how we want to live in our cities. In the film we meet activists and thinkers who are fighting for better cities, who refuse to stop riding despite the increasing number killed in traffic. Bikes vs Cars depicts a global crisis that deep down we all know we need to talk about.
