24:7 runners and riders

This year's ten 24:7 Festival productions and their writers have been announced for this year's July event:

  • All The Bens by Ian Townsend
  • The Cell by Michael Crowley
  • Firestarter by Dave Windass
  • Goldfish by Lisa Whiteside
  • The Interpreter, Home by Hekate Papadiki
  • The Legend of the Ghost Shark by Anthony Morgan
  • Loaded by Jo Kirtley Pritchard
  • My Arms by James Leach
  • Stars Are Fire by Francesca Waite
  • The Transit of Venus by Eric Northey

Some of the writers have known 24:7 for years and even performed in the Festival. For others it's their first involvement, but all will have a director and producer to make up their core team and are now set for the rigours of getting the show ready.

As ever, a lot of actors are desperate to get involved, but it's up to participating productions to cast their own shows.

However, as a new development, organisers will this year be recruiting a company of 24:7 Festival Players for a variety of roles in July.
