Scriptworks is an independent script development group that hosts regular readings on Monday nights at Contact. Actors read new text - driving chaired feedback sessions with professional writers, directors and dramaturgs. You can come as many times as you like, as a writer, an actor or to watch as an interested party.

We believe is that a script is a working document used to make theatre, it is a living thing not a dry piece of literature. Scripts are read aloud in our sessions, and questions are asked in a supportive environment, dedicated to helping the writer take their work to the next level.

We generally look at three lengths of script – up to 10 minutes, up to half an hour, and full length. In this manner, it is possible for someone to come to Scriptworks with a ten minute idea, and develop it into a half hour, and then full length play.

After this, the process exists to help the writer to develop future works. Established and successful writers regularly re-attend for this very reason.
