Down Stage Write – Write Home: Script Surgery Online (Devon and Cornwall writers)


Are you a playwright in Devon and Cornwall and currently working on a script? Feel like you need some help on an extract of it? Would you like to talk over your idea? Check a character is working on the page? Down Stage Write’s SCRIPT SURGERY ONLINE might be for you. Book a 45-minute slot with their team and get the feedback or support you need.

How does it work? They have 4 slots available with co-directors Jon Nash and Sam Parker on Tuesday 31st March 2020.

These will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.

This script surgery is FREE. Email us requesting a slot. Once your slot is confirmed you can (if you would like/if it is useful) send them a 10-15 page extract of your play. Please do this by Saturday 28th March so they have time to read it.

Where will this happen? The session will take place on Zoom.

On the day please be ready on Zoom 5 minutes before your allocated time slot; we will provide you with a link for this. During the 45 mins we can discuss your work and give feedback on the extract we’ve read, it will really be led by what you would like to get out of the conversation. If you are unable to access Zoom, we are really happy to adapt, whether this be by using another video platform like Skype, or by making it a phone call.

How do I apply? Please email: In that email let them know:

-About you and your writing (100 words max)

-About the play you are currently working on (100 words max)

-What support you need, questions etc (100 words max)

Deadline: not listed but the session takes place on 31 March 2020
