Calling New Writers!
An opportunity to develop and workshop your writing at our Studio in Warren Street! Chosen writers will have a section of their script rehearsed for approximately 2 hours with our trained actors. There will then be a staged reading in front of an invited audience, with a Q&A session, critical feedback & networking. We select 2-3 playwrights to work with per session. If you have an interest in developing your work using professional actors, please read the submission guidelines below and submit the required information to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note incomplete submissions may not be accepted.

Looks at different generations and the chances we give them and explores whether we spend too much time fixing the older generation and ignoring the younger one. It also asks the question; do people deserve second chance, when they ruin the life of another?

DAYS IN THE WAKE
is about a tragic event that took place during the early hours of Christmas morning outside a pub. Jake, a young man, punches an older man after an argument and the older man dies after striking his head on the pavement. It deals with the lives affected by it and local peoples' attitudes to what happened.
