Preview: Rehearsed Readings at Stockton ARC
Emerging theatre-makers to present rehearsed readings
Every Wednesday throughout May and June 2015
A group of eight emerging playwrights will be presenting rehearsed readings of new, and in some cases, debut scripts at ARC, Stockton.
The talented writers who are all part of Writers ARCADE, a peer led group of new and emerging playwrights, have benefited from a ten month professional development scheme, pairing them each with a professional playwright as a mentor and supporting them to work towards a new play.
The grant has also enabled the writers to receive advice and support from industry leaders including Alex Chisholm, Associate Director and Literary Manager of the West Yorkshire Playhouse and broadcaster and Emmerdale writer Nick Ahad, who both led writing based workshops with the group over the past few months.
Now, the eight writers are preparing to perform their developed scripts to the public through a series of Rehearsed Readings every Wednesday at ARC throughout May and June.
Themes of some of the scripts include; an overnight car journey for two colleagues whose lives are suddenly changed forever, a surprise discovery for friends and family of a girl whose flat has been empty for the past sixteen years and a war hero who returns home to swap a real gun for a supermarket gun.
