Jennie Lee: Tomorrow is a new Day [Rehearsed Reading] A Play by Matthew Knights



1½ hours

Born in Lochgelly Fife in 1904, Jennie Lee, a daughter of a miner, became the first ever Minister for the Arts and a founder of The Open University.

This is her story, told by others who did not know her.

Presented by Knights Theatre, development of the play began in April 2019 with a workshop in Jennie Lee’s native Lochgelly; and continues with a final rehearsed reading presented online - with hopes of bringing the story to a physical stage early in 2022.

Started in 2019 by playwright Matthew Knights, Knights Theatre aims to create Bold, Entertaining, Imaginative and Thought-provoking theatre; to challenge social injustice and continue the tradition of popular political theatre in Britain; and to engage new audiences by creating contemporary plays which explore social history.


Supported by Creative Scotland, ONFife and The Open University in Scotland.
