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 27th January 2024 at 7.30pm

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

The scripts are in; let the selection process commence!

We're polishing our reading glasses and liaising with our director Kathryn Hanke to organise the read-through of all your entries. Stay tuned to your email inbox and SYchat to find out whose pieces we'll be bringing to life at Seven Arts in January.

Talking of which, the tickets are now up for sale on Seven Arts' website. Book now to avoid disappointment!

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!
