THE LAST BREAD PUDDING by Nick Warburton
The Last Bread Pudding tells of a drama committee who meet to discuss a new play written by Jan Cooke, one of its young members.
Each member of the committee has views about what constitutes a good play – and these views are aired in spite of one or two interruptions to their meeting.

About the group
Bawds was founded in 1981 in Cambridge and presents three major productions a year plus one or two festival or studio productions – some of which have been toured as far as The Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
Bawds has no formal membership and is administered by an annually elected committee. They have an ongoing policy of considering submissions from local directors and open auditions are advertised for all their ‘main-house’ productions.
For studio production submissions, directors have the option of submitting for consideration after having already assembled their casts and production teams.
