TWO NORTH WEST PLAYWRIGHTS EVENTS
part of Oldham Coliseum’s WORDSMITH FESIVAL 09
CUTTING IT ON THE FRINGE
(A Playwright's Guide to Making it Happen)
Sat. 11 July 5.00 – 6.30 p.m.
Got a great play and don't know what to do with it?
There are plenty of ways of getting your work staged in the North West, if only you know where to go and who to talk to.
Here's an opportunity to hear first-hand from the people who organise fringe theatre festivals and run small-scale venues in our region.
What kind of plays are they looking for? How much does it cost? And what’s involved if you end up producing the play yourself?
Pick up hints and tips from those who know!
THE VOICE OF EXPERIENCE
Sat. 11 July 7.30 p.m.
Extracts from works-in-progress by four established writers: Charlotte Keatley (My Mother Said I Never Should), Lavinia Murray (numerous dramas for BBC radio) and seasoned TV writers Jane McNulty and Lindsay Williams.
The four have had an intensive lab process with North West Playwrights on plays with topics ranging from the aftermath of violence in Ulster to a surreal multi-sensory farce about food!
The writers will also discuss their experiences on the one-week residential they’ll have just completed. A unique opportunity to sample the work of writers at the top of their game.
