From page to stage...

We hold our Page to Stage events twice a year – with between four and six 15-minute pieces presented in a studio theatre space in front of a paying audience.


Members can submit a standalone piece or an excerpt from a longer script and, if selected, your work will be rehearsed by professional actors and performed script in hand.


It’s a fantastic opportunity to find out how well your script is working – both from the instant audience reaction and constructive critique from our guest panel of insightful professional writers (we invite different panellists to each event).


Everyone who submits a script for the event receives written feedback from our co-chair Jonathan Hall, regardless of whether their piece is selected for the event.

Our next P2S event

Saturday 2nd November 2019

Seven Arts, 31a Harrogate Road, Leeds, LS7 3PD at 7.30pm

The closing date for script submissions this time is 1st September, so get cracking!

If you're successful, you'll see your script up on its feet and get an unbiased critique via the panel discussions, which will be chaired by our very own Michael Stewart, plus audience feedback.


Tickets directly from Seven Arts nearer the time.

The actors perform the pieces

Our co-chair Jonathan Hall puts out a call for scripts via SYchat. After the deadline, he gets together with actor-director Emma Leah Golding to read all the submissions and select the pieces.


Then Emma casts and rehearses the selected pieces and the actors present them script in hand.


When you're writing your scripts, please bear in mind that we only ever have three actors. While they're amazingly versatile, they can't play a cast of thousands!
