Fresh from its first year in London, Write to Play is breaking out and heading to the North West of England to discover and develop five new writers in partnership with The Liverpool Everyman & Playhouse, The Royal Exchange Manchester and The Octagon Bolton.
Write to Play is an exciting new initiative to cultivate and promote Deaf and disabled writers. Working with some of the best new writing venues in the UK, we will provide top quality training alongside live performance opportunities so that five fantastic writers go on to develop a full-length play. The successful writers will get a fee of £1800 for their participation which will be paid in installments and have all access requirements met.
