PlayWright/ PlayRead

​Next Playwright/ Playread Workshop:  Sunday 6th August 7.00pm

Three play extracts + Twelve actors + An eager audience =  Playwright/Playread.
This Sunday our eagerly awaited event is yet again ready to go!

3 Plays. 3 New Writers 
Stanley by Luke Horton looks at different generations and the chances we give them. It 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 by Jim Willis 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.

The Secret Life of The Shadow by Steven Lancefield is a psychological thriller set in London. Daniel is a promising young Ballet dancer at a prestigious performing arts school, but his career in dance is cruelly halted after a physical attack by his classmate, Kieran. Fifteen years later, a chance encounter in a bar brings Kieran and Daniel back into contact with each other, with tragic consequences.
