Live Looking for Young Writers
Newcastle’s Live Theatre is looking for eight keen young writers aged 16 or over to get involved in an new project from September to November, an opportunity for anyone interested in taking their writing further or with an interest in drama / theatre / performing.
The project is called Indiana Jones and the Extra Chair, and will involve taking part in some writing and performance workshops with poet Simon Mole and theatre director Peader Kirk to develop a piece of theatre around the subject of family gatherings, which will be performed at Live on 3 November, in the last weekend of the Juice Festival.
For more information about the performance, see www.live.org.uk/whats-book/indiana-jones-extra-chair.
Participants must be 16 or over, be willing and able to take part in some weekend and evening workshops in October and do a bit of work on their writing independently between sessions. There will be an initial meeting to discuss the project and visit Live Theatre on 6 September. Anyone interested should email firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and age.
