Well, you're in luck. We are delighted to announce our up-coming programme of Rehearsed Readings from our TOR Emerging Writers. Our thirteen writers begun their journey in 2019 with a series of workshops and masterclasses, all while working towards the final draft of a play or TV screenplay. We all know what happened next. While this pandemic has robbed our writers of a live audience, it hasn't robbed them of an audience all together. Finally, after all of their hard work and incredible patients, the time has come to share their work starting next week, Friday Feb 26th, with a new release every Friday until the end of May.
Each Rehearsed Reading will be available for one week only, so jot these dates down in your diary, watch this space and be sure to tune in.

Network gan/by Jessica Hannagan-Jones

Yn wreiddiol, ysgrifennwyd Network fel cyfres fer i’r We. Mae’r ddrama yn dilyn pedair menyw sy’n canfod cysur tra’n sgwrsio ac yn ymchwilio i’r tywyllwch beunyddiol eu bywydau. Dim ond ar ôl clywed y drafodaeth wedi’r digwyddiadau, y mae modd i’r gynulleidfa greu darlun eu hunain o wirionedd y helyntion. Dengys y pwt yma o’r ddrama gomedi tywyll, ddilyniannau o’r sgwrsio, y clebran a’r hapusrwydd ymddangosol y ceisiant ei gyfleu yn pallu ac yn simsanu wrth ddatgelu‘r gwirioneddau. Mae’n llawn hiwmor. Glywch chi eu cri?

Network, originally written as a short Web series, follows four women finding comfort in conversation as they delve into the everyday darkness their lives entail. Only hearing the 'after the fact' discussion does the audience build their own off stage reality of events. This snippet of the dark comedy drama shows a timeline altered series of catch ups between the four as the happiness they portray begins to falter and truths become apparent. Shrouded in humour. Can you hear the pleas?
