Write Now 3 Playwrighting Festival at Jack Studio

Write Now 3 Playwrighting Festival takes place at the Jack Studio Theatre, in Brockley, south east London.

In July 2011 writers with a connection to south east London submited previously unperformed plays to the theatre. The three plays which form the season were drawn from these submissions and will have their first fully staged performances in April 2012. The Festival is run by the Jack Studio Theatre and is now in its third year.

10 to 14 April 2012
Emoticon, by Melissa Bubnic, directed by Omar F. Okai. Tiani knows she's hot. Alice knows she's ugly. James thinks he's fit. And Dale wishes none of this were happening. Four very different teenagers search for sex, validation, and the wisdom to know which is which. A darkly comic play for anyone who's ever wished they were someone else.

17 to 21 April 2012
Skin Head, by Jessica Brown, directed by Lydia Parker. Jack's shaving his head. He can't explain why. Becky left him behind and has now returned to find his home town swallowing him up. Theresa's a survivor, she's not feeling herself. Ted thinks he's the only one who can help. This is a small town, and everyone's business is your business. Skinhead is a new play about the way we live and the way we let go.

24 to 28 April 2012
Borderland, by Carol Vine, directed by Lydia Parker. The near future. Lucy raids the empty flats in a sprawling sink estate for leftovers. Darren finds himself abandoned by the country he fought for. Tray will do anything to survive. As the place disintegrates into violence and neglect, they are all drawn deeper into a world that threatens to destroy them before they can leave.
