Dream Reality Radio Drama is a new artist development opportunity to support a group of up to 8 first time radio writers based in West Yorkshire to each create a short radio play.
Working in partnership with Dream Reality Radio Drama, a project created by Leeds based writer and director Sol B River, the group will take part in a free intensive two-day workshop exploring the craft and skills of writing for radio. The workshop will be led by Dermot Daly who has extensive experience in radio drama as both an actor and director, alongside Sol B River and other leading industry professionals.
Following the two-day workshop, the writers will receive support and dramaturgy as they develop their short radio plays. Each writer will receive a stipend of £100 towards expenses to take part in the project and there is additional budget to support any access requirements.
The plays will be recorded by a team of professional actors and made publicly available on www.dreamrealityradio.com. They will also be shared in front of a live audience as script-in-hand readings as part of Furnace Festival at Leeds Playhouse in November 2021.
