What's on

New Writing Week

New Writing Week - books

Progress Theatre is proud to present our first online New Writing Week 12-17 October! During the week you’ll be able to enjoy not one, but five, fantastic new short plays, written by Reading-based writers and produced for camera by Progress Theatre.

  • Eaten Cold by Anthony Travis
  • A Love of Sorts by Liz Carroll  
  • Mary by Anthony Travis
  • Sweet Dreams by Sarah Swatridge
  • Tiger's Eye by Matthew Beswick
     

We'll be releasing a new, recorded play each day via Progress TV 

New Writing Week plays are available to view free of charge! 

There will also be a live Scratch performance during the week. More details to follow soon!

This New Writing Week follows on from the success of WriteFest, Progress Theatre's annual celebration of new writing by local writers. Though we can't bring you WriteFest as scheduled on stage this autumn, you can still see a selection of exciting and varied new writing online at our digital theatre - Progress TV
