About: PlayWROUGHT

A week long celebration of new ideas, new voices and new writing.

The word wright is an archaic English term for a craftsman or builder. When combined with the word play, this indicates someone who has wrought words, themes, and other elements into a dramatic form, someone who crafts plays.

PlayWROUGHT is a week long new writing festival taking place at Arcola Theatre from the 20th-25th January 2014. Across the week, twelve exciting new plays will premier as a series of rehearsed readings. Drawn from across the Arcola community, these twelve playwrights vary in age and experience, but each have a unique voice that deserves to be heard.

PlayWROUGHT was born out of a frustration at not being able to work with as many new writers as we would like. At Arcola Theatre, we receive countless submissions from playwrights every year. Without a literary department, we are unable to be as active as we would like, particularly in developing those plays which show real promise, but would benefit from time, space, support and a platform to share their work.

The Festival is a culmination of this unique development process and aims to celebrate and support new and emerging talent, regardless of age, by providing these twelve playwrights with the training, space and support in which to develop their ideas.

We are delighted to present twelve new daring, original and important voices.

Full programme of plays to be announced soon. Part of Arcola Creative Engagement Winter Festival 2014
