The heat is on at The Basement

Script Yorkshire York is a super-active group of writers and actors who have been working with theatre makers in York since 2008.


Their mainstay is their hugely popular Script Factor event, in which 15-minute scripts are presented script-in-hand by local actors at The Basement, City Screen.


It's open to writers of all levels, you don't have to live in York, and you don't even have to be a member of Script Yorkshire if it's your first time, although participants are encouraged to join thereafter.
