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.

First Stage

First Stage is our annual series of staged rehearsed readings of new short pieces of drama for two to six actors.

Performances: Sundays 25th Oct, 8 Nov. 22 Nov & 6 Dec at 7pm in the ADC Bar.
6 Dec:  Tickets, Details

Our Artistic Director, Richard McNally, was recently interviewed on www.cambridge105.fm. You can hear the interview here (mp3).

Feedback Group

Our informal script feedback group group meets at least once a month. It gives an opportunity to meet with fellow writers, and to read aloud and discuss your work.

The next meeting date will be announced soon. E-mail julia@writeon.org.uk if you would like to more information.


We run improv courses throughout the year.  Our next beginners class runs on Monday evenings for 8 weeks, starting 18 January.  Our next improvers class will start in April.  More details here.

Winter party

Our winter party will be on Sunday 10 Jan from 12.00pm – 7.00pm.
