Formed in 2012, the company develops the writing of new and unpublished writers and the development of new and emerging arts professionals. The company currently is working to find new and exciting creative outlets whilst still retaining its passion for new writing. As a company, we with to break new ground in the theatre industry by working with new writers to challend and investigate what it is to be a 'New Writer' in an industry that is constantly evolving. The main aim is to work with early career writers and give them a stepping stone into working in a professional environment. We do this by:
- Inviting new writers to send us their material for us to look at, and if successful, have their material developed over a 6-month period, culminating in a professional performance.
- Generating new and never seen before material through oral hisories and verbatim theatre techniques.
If you are a writer and want to work with us, please send us some information on your work and we will be in touch!
