News: Popular scratch performance New Writing Night returns to Stockton ARC
Popular scratch performance New Writing Night returns to Stockton ARC on 30th January 2018
New Writing Night returns to ARC on 30th January where visitors will have the opportunity to view sharings of new short plays by artists that are looking for feedback from audiences in order to aid their development.
New Writing Night is performed and directed by MA Theatre and Performance students (and friends) from Northumbria University, Newcastle. The group are thrilled to be working at ARC on such exciting new scripts and gaining further valuable experience in working and collaborating with arts venues.
The plays are all works-in-progress and, as such, will be fresh to both the audience and the venue. This means that audience members will be able to give feedback on what they have seen and, potentially, have a direct influence on how the works will look when complete.
The MA in Theatre and Performance is a one year postgraduate taught course with a strong industry focus. The course offers students the opportunity to develop and hone their skills as independent creative practitioners, and support them in the transition of those skills from the classroom and into the professional world.

New Writing Night is priced on a Pay What You Decide basis. ARC wants to encourage more people to come and see shows at ARC more often. Pay What You Decide not only allows visitors to pay what they can afford, rather than a fixed ticket price, but also removes the financial risk of buying a ticket for a show in advance without knowing whether they are going to enjoy it or not.
