A Cockpit Production
Part of Theatre Maker
Every month we present an evening of rehearsed readings of new writing.
Each evening gives writers the chance to have their work read in front of a responsive audience and gives the audience the chance to witness new work and provide informal feedback to help the pieces develop.
The 2019 season will run at 5.30pm on the following dates:
20th January, 17th February, 17th March, 21st April, 19th May, 16th June & 21st July 2019
21 April 2019:
ghost(s) by Will Close & Joe Von Malachowski
A dark, comic monologue about haunted people and places.
"30 years old, living in the same town all his life, and trapped in a dead-end job where it seems he can’t open his mouth without offending a younger colleague. Everything seems to be changing but him.
Obsessed with the past but unable to face up to it, he longs for a simpler time of pokémon cards, school discos and stable pronouns. But nostalgia is always dangerous…
A personal tragedy is about to force him to re-examine his past and come to terms with some uncomfortable truths."
If you’re a writer, director, producer or theatre-maker and have a piece of new writing that you’d like to put on its feet, in front of an audience, then this is the place for it.
If you have a piece to read and you’d like to apply, then you can do so here. Need more information, click here to find out the full details.
ACCESSIBILITY: The show takes place in one of our upstairs studios, which is only accessible up a spiral staircase. Also, numbers are strictly limited, so it is strongly advisable to book in advance.
