Every month 4-5 writers/composers introduce their short pieces of theatre writing concerning the "news" to a bunch of actors, workshop it for 1 hour with their cast, present it to each other and exchange feedback. A safe space to workout creativity and artistry for writers/composers and actors alike.
Join as a WRITER/COMPOSER by submitting your piece of writing until Thursday noon the week before, scripts will be picked by Saturday noon the week before.
The piece of writing needs to deal with the NEWS in some way following our motto: LEARN from the past, CREATE in the present, CHALLENGE the future. Ideally it is self-contained and written for the purpose of a Newsroom Session.
Cast: 2 roles minimum
Length: 4-8 min
You can audio record the showing and the feedback round.
Join as an ACTOR by applying and confirming your availability until Thursday noon the week before, cast will be picked by Sunday noon the week before.
You might be asked to be a JOKER, which means you can join the session but will only be part of a cast if an actor drops out.
