Page to Stage at The Berry Theatre
The Berry Theatre presents an evening of rehearsed play readings, of short plays and extracts.
The aim of this evening is to get new plays up on their feet with script in hand so the writers can hear their words in front of a public audience. The actors have a limited time to work on short plays and extracts, which make this a fresh and exciting experience for all.
You will see work in progress. presented by a creative team of people looking to offer an example of how these plays could work on stage for the first time.
This is an excellent opportunity for audience members and writers to feedback and discuss new work and work-in-progress from playwrights in Hampshire.
Page to Stage is supported by Hampshire Writers' Hub.
