Page to stage

At long last, our spring 2020 Page to Stage has been rescheduled! The scripts we selected pre-pandemic have been taken out of cold storage, our director Emma is gearing up to book our actors and arrange rehearsals, and we're lining up our first feedback panel in over two years. Are we giddy much? You better believe it!

Writing a theatre play with Tom Wells
11am to 4pm in the City Room at Leeds Playhouse
Let's not be fooled by Tom's youthful appearance; he has a dozen plays already published by Nick Hern books, all of which have been performed on renowned stages up and down the country. This workshop promises writing enlightenment for a November day!
"You find that plays, radio dramas, TV series and movies are written by people just like you. They fret, they struggle, occasionally triumph. They live in Yorkshire. They belong to Script Yorkshire."
