Our latest project, Zooming Ahead, which started in Sept 2020 is just drawing to a close. With most theatres then dark due to Covid, this project offered some light and hope for women writers based in the South West. Whilst we couldn’t offer production opportunities, we could offer a package of script development support including dramaturgy and Zoom readings for 10 writers, so as theatres start to produce again they have 10 oven-baked scripts ready to go!
The writers and the scripts they developed were:
Micha Colombo – BRANDED (Dramaturg – David Prescott)
Jo Cross – AGE QUEER (Dramaturg – Bea Roberts)
Christine Diment & Kitty Waldron – ROSE (Dramaturg – James Peries)
Celeste Engel – SWEET DREAMS (Dramaturg – Bea Roberts)
Ezra England – NUCLEAR CHILDREN (Dramaturg – Mike Akers)
Alison Farina – LOBSTER TALE (Dramaturg – Matt Grinter)
Alice Flynn - WATER, FEATHER, STONE (Dramaturg – Sharon Clark)
Jane Morris – NUDE (Dramaturg – Matt Grinter)
Laura Quigley – RAISING VOICES (Dramaturg – Mike Akers)
Clare Reddaway – FLOTSAM (Dramaturg – Marietta Kirkbride)
We are now in planning mode for 2022 so watch this space!
