Presenting BLUE SKY SCRIPTS 2, a whole week of activity celebrating writing from Welsh / Wales-based writers. Join us as we lift the lid on the creative process, throw some big ideas up in the air and push new work to new heights.  

FULL PROGRAMME

13/11 – Rehearsed Reading: HORNS by François Pandolfo

Do you think in lyrics? Do you dream in song? What story does your iTunes playlist tell? Originally discovered through SEEN at The Other Room, Horns (formally Our Love is Music), is singing from a completely different hymn sheet. This ambitious new play by François Pandolfo radically splices lyrics and dialogue. We will be presenting a rehearsed reading of the full script followed by a talk-back session – so come along and give your two pence.

Performance @ 7:30pm

14/11 – Blue Sky SEEN

The second instalment of BLUE SKY SCRIPTS 2 is our monthly SEEN platform. For November’s SEEN we are looking for playwrights with the big ideas, be it in form or in theme; we want to see how wild your imagination can be. Applications are now open.

15/11 - Rehearsed Reading: Life9 by Tracy Harris

Runner up of the New Welsh Playwrights Programme at the SHERMAN Theatre, Life9, is a harrowing play that looks at motherhood and abuse whilst asking serious questions of our social care systems. Tracy Harris's play was inspired by real-life stories, lending the play a healthy helping of authenticity. We will be presenting a rehearsed reading of the full script followed by a talk-back session - all in the spirit of developing the script the next level.

Performance @ 7:30pm
