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 are on Sundays 26 Oct, 9 & 23 Nov, 7 & 14 Dec at 7pm in the ADC Theatre bar, Park Street, Cambridge CB5 8AS. Tickets £6/£5 – no booking fee.

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 is on Mon 10th November. E-mail julia@writeon.org.uk if you would like to attend.
