Birds fly from an open cage.

For the 23rd consecutive year, students from our MRes in Playwriting Studies course at the University of Birmingham are presenting extracts from their final project plays in the annual Playwrights’ Workshop.

Following the success of their show ‘10x10:the Journey Home’ back in March, the ten playwrights of 2013 are now serving up more bite-sized theatre – this time in the form of twenty-minute extracts from plays they have worked on throughout the year-long course.

Course Convenor Fraser Grace is delighted with this year’s program: ‘Our directors this year are all top people - Gwenda Hughes, Adam Ledger and Di Sherlock have pulled together a crack team of professional actors from near and far to perform rehearsed readings of some really exciting plays. And for the first time, they’ll take place at two venues across the city’.

See the Workshop FREE on Friday 31 May 2013 at George Cadbury Hall, 9.45 am – 6pm.

Catch them again on Saturday 1 June 2013 at Old Joint Stock Theatre, Temple Row, Birmingham. (First five plays, between 4 and 6.30pm, and the second five from 7.30pm. Buy one ticket and see them all!) Tickets for Old Joint Stock event £5, on 0121 200 0946.

Playwrights’ Workshop 2013 is supported by University of Birmingham; the Department of Drama & Theatre Arts; Circles of Influence and the Old Joint Stock Theatre.
