P2S-main-page-photo.jpg

From page to stage...

We hold our Page to Stage events twice a year – with five 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 Chair Jonathan Hall, regardless of whether their piece is selected for the event.

Our next P2S event

Saturday 18th June 2022 at 7.30pm

Seven Arts, 31a Harrogate Road, Leeds, LS7 3PD

Aaaand we're back in the room! At long last, ding-dong bell, we're going live with our first Page to Stage in two long, lonely years. Oh how we've missed our in-the-flesh script-in-hands!

We've dusted down the scripts we selected pre-pandemic. Our trusty P2S team is getting ready to rock. And we're hoping, as always, that our esteemed host Michael Stewart will be free to lead proceedings on the night.

Looking forward to seeing you all in that wonderfully intimate theatre space again this summer!

The actors perform the pieces

Our 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!
