On July 28th a new event is coming to SE1. A Friend of a Friend is continuing to support new writing, an this time we’re looking at how we can develop and encourage emerging playwrights and new work. With this in mind, we have designed a series of bi-monthly events whose aim is to give artists an opportunity to try new things, and see how they are received across a multitude of genres: rehearsed readings, new musical recitals or art installations.
We hope to incorporate a sense of professional camaraderie and collaboration within our industry; Each event will benefit from the experience and wisdom of relevant industry practitioners. These Experts will both give verbal feedback on each new piece as well as lead a discussion that reflects the concerns and interests of our participants and audience.
The inaugural From Scratch is a new writing event presenting five short plays.
We would like to welcome our esteemed panel:
