I am writing with exciting news of a new project at Northern Broadsides – we’d love your help in spreading the word.

Yesterday we announced a free playwriting group for people aged 16-25 in the North of England who want to try writing a short play. No previous experience is required. Starting with the fundamentals of playwriting, the group will meet fortnightly with our Resident Assistant Director, Hallam Breen, in a series of workshops, script-readings and one-on-one surgeries on Zoom, to develop their own short plays.

The workshops will culminate in a scratch performance of these plays, read/performed by professional actors.

The deadline for applications is 10pm, Sunday 7th March 2021. If you know anyone who might be interested in this opportunity then do point them in the direction of our webpage:

Great opportunity for young people @NBroadsides!
