SCRATCH THEATRE NIGHT
NEW CLOUD NINE DRAMA ON VIEW AT THE EXCHANGE
Cloud Nine presents an evening of new theatre writing Thursday next (Nov.30th) with a quartet of new script-in-hand readings, short extracts from plays which the company is at present developing with a range of authors. The Scratch Theatre Night takes place at The Exchange, Howard Street, North Shields, NE30 1SE.
Three of the pieces spring from the theatre workshops at present being run at The Exchange by Cloud Nine’s artistic director Peter Mortimer. On Trial, by Fergus Campbell tackles the controversial issue of a rape enquiry., while Luke Thompson’s Calico is an historical piece featuring two famous female pirates. Ruth Rogerson’s Dead Beat is a bizarre comedy about an unexpected dead body in a living room.
The final extract is from Kitty Fitzgerald’s long-term work on a brand new and radical version of the classical old English poem, Beowulf.
There will also be live music – exact details to be announced.
Entry is only £3.00 and can be paid on the door. This is a chance to catch some new writing at its formative stage and possibly spot a major play of the future! For more details ring Peter Mortimer at Cloud Nine on 0191-2531901.www.attheexchange.info/content/theatre-scratch-night
