book-and-birdsWRiTEON is a Cambridge-based group that stages rehearsed readings of new drama, enabling writers to develop their work and offering actors and directors opportunities to bring new material to life on stage for the first time. We also run workshops on writing, acting, directing and performance improvisation and hold a regular feedback group for scripts in progress.

Performances: Sun 27, Mon 28 July 2014 7pm in Corpus Playroom.  Tickets (£7/£6) from corpusplayroom.com
