StageWrite 2016 – dates announced

We now have dates for StageWrite 2016, so make sure they’re in your diary… 9th – 12th March 2016.  Further details of line-up in due course…

Well, we have noWine and firew closed for submissions and this year we have been absolutely inundated with scripts. This coming festival will be such an exciting one.  We have been blown away by the way we have grown and grown since the festival started in 2012.  This time of year is always particularly exciting too… the days are drawing in and the nights are getting colder so it’s the perfect time to huddle up with a blanket in front of a roaring fire, with a nice glass of merlot and read some scripts.  I know, right…

If you have submitted a script, we will be in touch in due course with a line up for the festival, but be patient with us.  It’s going to take a few fires and few bottles of wine to get through them all but we should be back to you with a decision by End of November/Early December.

In the meantime, cross everything you have as we have gone for Arts Council Funding, yet again.  If you’ve been following our journey, you will know that we haven’t managed to secure funding for the last three festivals.  This meaCheerful man holding dollar billsns that everyone involved is working for free and, these log fires and bottles of wine don’t pay for themselves you know!  So, this year we are applying as part of an application with our venue, The Place Theatre, Bedford.  If you have any other ideas regarding funding or alternative places we could look for funding, or indeed you’re a multimillionaire with a passion for new writing, then please do get in touch and let us know.  You can contact me at phil@stagewrite.org.uk.
