February 2018 meeting

Writers’ Night

Sussex Playwrights host a monthly playwrights’ meetup night – writers of film, theatre, TV, radio, online drama, plus actors, directors, producers, crew and their friends are welcome to come along for networking, sharing writing, reading and discussing their work.

This month, we hosted some live readings of short extracts / short plays / works in progress / finished pieces.

Thanks to the Playwrights Roz Scott, Peter Gardiner and Tristan Wolfe and all the readers, who got the plays on their feet and sparked lively audience discussions.

Simon Jenner will be reporting on the event shortly.

The invitation said:

‘If you’re preparing a production for the Hove Grown festival and would like to read or perform an excerpt at the February meeting for discussion and review, contact us as soon as possible to secure a slot.

Please let us know if you’d like your actors to perform it, or if you’d prefer that we cast actors to read your excerpt for you.

Each item will be followed by audience, actor and writer discussion.

Works in progress are absolutely fine – your piece can still be at the script-in-hand reading stage.

You don’t have to be a member of Sussex Playwrights to showcase your piece for discussion – we welcome visitors and friends.
