Following the huge success of our Pitch Your Play
scheme in 2018 (in which we received over 170 applications!), we’re excited to be launching The Script Sessions
- our very own Play Development/Reading Lab. We will be hosting these sessions to get together with actors and read a play extract submitted by a young playwright. The sessions will offer Masterclass members the opportunity to hone their table reading skills, and provide an easy way for playwrights to hear their work aloud and get some helpful, friendly feedback.
We will be looking for actors
to join us. It is the perfect opportunity to keep your table reading skills fresh, read for a character you wouldn’t typically get the opportunity to play, meet other creatives, and enjoy some great plays!
For the first season of the Script Sessions, we have invited back our longlisted playwrights from Pitch Your Play to submit a few scenes from something they are currently working on. We want to nurture these writers by providing a more holistic approach to script development, and therefore supporting them whilst they take the next step in their careers.
To apply for sessions, keep an eye on our upcoming events
. Please note you must be signed up as a Masterclass member to apply for sessions.
