Running since 2013, StageWrite is a hothouse for the development of new writing for theatre, and now features in each artistic season at The Place.  Join us to be the first to experience two brand new plays over the course of one evening.

The pieces are between 30 and 60 minutes in length and are performed script in hand by professional actors, giving a true flavour of what they’d be like in full production.  StageWrite supports writers in providing a platform for new work, and gives the audience a chance to have their say.

This season’s shows:

Man Rat Mink by Peter Eyre

“This is hopeless.  We should have had a plan.”  Ryan, Amy and Becca are on a rescue mission, trying to do the right thing.  The only thing is, they’re doing it really, really badly… This comedy focuses on what happens when three people’s best intentions go awry, and throws an annoyed security guard into the mix for good measure.

Whipped by Scott Younger

“I just mean…maybe she’ll give him some direction.  He’s always been a bit…aimless.”

Nick’s pretty smitten with new girlfriend Isy, and it looks like Isy feels the same.  Josh and Abbey, Nick’s friends since childhood, try to navigate the new dynamic in their close friendship circle.  Something tells them there’s trouble in paradise.
