Write Now Networking Event at CUC. 20 Jan 2010


Write Now are delighted to announce that the plays to participate in this summer’s festival have been chosen and invited.

The EIGHT plays which will come together to make the First Annual Liverpool One Act play Festival running from Friday 26 March to Saturday 03 April 2010 will be:

The Dressmaker’s Gift by Anita Franklin

The Guy’s A Monster by Dave Young

Heart by James Stewart

I’m Ed Caesar by Nick Brelsford

The Person Without by Jenny Yates

Pippin Hal by Paul Williams

Second’s Out by Helen East

Under My Skin by Rob Johnston

Eight original, exciting, new pieces of theatre to add that extra sparkle to the Easter weekend!

In addition, we are delighted to announce that we have developed a play text workshop strand in conjunction with Everyman Playhouse Literacy Team which will see a one-day event for those submissions who didn’t make the final eight, and two workshop / rehearsed reading events during the festival for:

No Smoke by Annabel Dearing

Everything Must Go by Graham Chadwick


Too long the word on the grapevine has been one of not enough work or recognition for Fringe theatre in Liverpool, well, here is an event that we hope will rectify that. But it will only work if you get in involved…

We are currently seeking one or two directors to assist in the delivery of the EIGHT plays. Your chance to show the city of Liverpool what you can do! Email your current CV to info@writenowfestival.co.uk to contact Write Now if you’d like an introduction to participating writes.

Actors, Stage Managers and Technicians
We are also seeking to cast and crew the shows!

Write Now are hosting a network casting and crew event called the ‘Meet’ Market on:-

Wednesday 20 January 2010 from 5 – 9pm

at The Contemporary Urban Centre
41-51 Greenland Street

This will be a Networking event where interested parties can meet and talk to the writers and directors.

Bring along a handful of CVs and headshots (actors only) it’s your chance to promote yourself. We will be casting the must see event on the Liverpool Arts calendar 2010 from attendees of this event. If, however, you’re unable to make the ‘Meet’ Market, all remaining roles will be listed after the event on a page on the Write Now website, immediately following the event.
