London Contemporary Play reading workshops for actors and writers

Plays are meant to be seen and heard, not read by oneself!
This playreading group is an inspiring way to get a feel for plays you have not seen and start to enter and inhabit the world of that play. Participants can attend on a drop-in basis to discover a new play or can attend on an ongoing basis with the chance to develop new work for performance.

“We will be reading new plays each week from a juicy crop of new writing by Duncan Macmillan, Mike Bartlett, Abi Morgan et al. NEXT MEETING THURSDAY 9TH JUNE 7PM IN NEW CROSS. Actors have the opportunity to take home a copy of the script each time.”

This group is for:
– any actor or aspiring actor/writer who feels they want to be reading more plays but can’t get a good feel for them just reading alone
– actors looking for new and inspiring creative material to use for an audition piece or show
– actors and writers looking to see what’s out there in terms of cutting edge material for stage
– actors interested in creative collaboration
– actors who would like to take home new and fresh playscripts
Venue: Amersham Arms public house opposite the road from New Cross Station (10 minutes by train from London Bridge).
Dates: Thursday 9th June, 7pm, aiming for a prompt start
Monday 13th June, 7pm
Tuesday 21st June, 7pm and then every Tuesday till July 19th.
Price: EARLYBIRD BOOKING: £9 (if booked at least 2 days before Playreading workshop)

“Places are limited so actors MUST book in advance so I can guarantee they will get to read and also to prepare a copy of the script for them which they will have the opportunity to take home after, for the next workshop, please book via this eventbrite link:
Thereafter, announcements for further sessions will be made via the group which you are invited to join.
