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.



After the great success WRiTEON has had with our Capability and Beyond project,  culminating in 9 new short plays staged at Wimpole on two nights last June, the National Trust have invited us back!

Our new project at Wimpole Estate will be focussing on writing plays inspired by history. The initial workshop will be held on Sunday, October 16th from 10 – 3pm. More information, including how to book one of the limited spaces can be found here.


Acting Up!

This regular WRiTEON workshop will give you the chance to see your words brought to life by a team of experienced actors and directors. You’ll also get feedback and suggestions for further development of characters, plot, theme and other aspects of your play. More information can be found here.


Our AGM will held on the 28th September between 7pm and 8pm at Arbury Court Library. It is open to the public, so you are more than welcome to come along and listen to our reflection on the past year and our plans for the future. We’d love to have your input and hear any suggestions that you may have to improve our organisation.
