Down Stage Write

Playwrights for Hire


Sat 1 Jun




60 mins





Please collect tickets at The Drum from 20 minutes before the performance begins

Find one of our team of playwrights stationed in fringe venues during the week. For only £1 you can feel like a big time producer and commission a one page play based on your ideas, whether you want a gritty kitchen sink drama, a moving monologue or a play where Ainsley Harriot marries a dinosaur.

At the end of the week come and see our gang of actors (including some of your favourites from other fringe shows) perform as many of the plays as possible in one hour, script in hand. A new writing night like no other, it’s the perfect way to finish the fringe!

Find out just how many plays we can write and stage in a week!?

All profits from play commissions go to charity.

Down Stage Write is a theatre company dedicated to providing development and production opportunities for playwrights in Devon and Cornwall.
