Out of Joint have relaunched The Andrea Project – originally conceived with the Royal Court Theatre and the Octagon Theatre Bolton and shared with young people in London and Bolton last year. This year Out of Joint will be bringing this exciting project to Sheffield Theatres, giving young people from Sheffield the opportunity to take part in writing workshops with a professional playwright. They will then write their own short plays and see them performed before an audience by professional actors onstage at Sheffield Theatres. This project is offered entirely FREE to participants, and is a great opportunity to see your work performed, tell the stories you want to tell, and show us the world through your eyes.
To be considered for the project, you must be between 15-19 years old, live in Sheffield and have an interest in writing. No prior interest or knowledge in drama or theatre is necessary.
Applications are via submitting up to two pages of your writing. Please note: this can be a scene, a monologue, a poem, prose, or anything that gives an idea of your style of writing.
