Stage to Page is a voluntary collective of writers, directors and actors who meet monthly to conduct short public workshops of scenes from brand new plays.
This exploration of new writing is an opportunity for writers to be actively involved in an exciting workshop process, hear their work being read and get feedback from directors, actors and the audience.
It is led by a different guest each month, drawn from Scotland’s thriving community of writers, directors and theatre practitioners.
