North West theatre director Charlie Mortimer is exploring best practice in working with new writing, while Helen East’s play Ripples In Concrete looks at the unlikely relationship between an asylum seeker and her council estate neighbour.

In a first reading and through development workshops the pair hope to explore the most effective ways of nurturing a new script from first draft to a production-ready script.

In a series of events around the region, they are sharing their discoveries, taking questions and demonstrating new writing to audiences.

On Tuesday they are at Korova Arts in Preston and on June 29 return to Manchester’s
Three Minute Theatre.
