At the Playhouse for the first time

For anyone aspiring to be a writer, wanting to see a new play in development or wanting to work with the UK’s leading practitioners, Everyword 2011 new writing festival is a 2-week whirlwind of events, readings, discussions, debates and workshops.

This year, Everyword moves to the Playhouse taking full advantage of the different spaces around the building, including the exciting reopening of the Playhouse Studio.

Critically acclaimed High Hearted Theatre has been commissioned to create a piece to celebrate the centenary of the Playhouse Repertory Company on 11 November. Set in different spaces around the building, this performance will be unique to the Playhouse and its wonderful history.

First Words, a creative project with tutti frutti productions, Dukes Theatre Lancaster and Sheffield Theatres, nurtures and develops writers to create theatre for children aged 3-7 years. Six writers will take over the building for one special day and invite children to come along and open their imaginations to the creation of new theatre especially for them.

Everyword has seen the first readings of many new plays that have progressed to full-scale productions, which, in the past year alone, include Tiny Volcanoes, Dead Heavy Fantastic, Endz and this season’s The Swallowing Dark.

All writers need inspiration as well as a sense of community. (Everyword) annual festival of new writing offers both.” The Guardian
