Chichester Young Playwrights

Conceived by New Writing South and Chichester Festival Theatre, the programme (now in its second year) offered twelve young writers aged between 16 and 25 based in the south east, the opportunity to work with screen, TV and theatre writer Suhayla El Bushra in ten tailor-made workshops to inspire and develop them as playwrights. The participants did not need any previous experience as a playwright, but a passion for writing and a desire to give it a go were essential. To read more about this inspiring programme, visit the creative learning pages of our website, www.newwritingsouth.com

OurSpace

New Writing South's OurSpace project ended on a high with showcase finale piece 'Insomnia'. The project was designed to give students, aged 13-16 from Brighton Youth Theatre, Falmer an insight into the many aspects of working in the performing arts. The Falmer High School students had the rare opportunity of working with top professional practitioners to create and produce their own piece of theatre. The professional practitioners involved were: writer Jo Smith, award-winning filmmaker Simon Wilkinson, Olivier winner Stephen Clark, Simon Harvey of internationally renowned Kneehigh Theatre, ex-Eastenders actress Victoria Gould, professional voice coach Nancy Wigglesworth, and zany Brighton based Unpacked Theatre. Insomnia was performed at the Pavilion Theatre, Brighton in June 2009. Supported by Arts Council England, South East and Brighton & Hove City Council.
