WoLab presents… the Actor-Writer Showcase

WoLab’s Actor-Writer Showcase is back- this time partnering with The CentrE17, to deliver a FREE 12-week intensive course. Funded by the Arts Council, and led by industry professionals, this programme is aimed specifically at actor-writers.

Over the 12 weeks, the group will develop their existing playwriting and acting skills through a series of tailored workshops, which will also include mentoring sessions in producing and marketing, as well as regular visits from established playwrights/theatre makers within the industry. All participants will be working towards a industry showcase to an invited audience of agents, casting directors, programmers, and producers. Throughout the duration of the course, participants will write their own monologue to perform for the showcase, as well as co-write a duologue with another member of the group. They will receive personalised support and feedback during the process.



Wednesday 28th August at 12pm.

Shortlisted applicants will be invited to attend an audition on Tuesday 3rd September.

You will be notified if you have been shortlisted by Friday 30th August.


  • An introductory welcome session will be held on 10th September, 1-5pm.
  • Course Dates: Every Tuesday 1-5pm, from 17th September – 3rd December.
  • Showcase Dates: 8th and 9th December (Sunday evening and Monday matinee performances – venue tbc).

All sessions will be held at The CentrE17 in Walthamstow.
