Playwrights' Studio Scotland presents

Stage to Page

Mon 30 Jan 2012 | 7pm | £3 (pay on the door - includes a drink)

A chance for writers, actors and directors to collaborate by workshopping scenes from a new work together.

Stage to Page, supported by Playwrights’ Studio Scotland, offers writers, actors and directors the chance to explore freshly written scenes from new plays, workshopping them together on the night before presenting them to the group for feedback.

This is an opportunity to play, create, influence and collaborate with other artists in your field – or simply observe the process as it happens.


Each month, a guest will choose three scenes from a new work, inviting three writers and directors to meet in advance and allocate scenes.

On the night, actors and observers will arrive to find envelopes containing a description of each available role. Actors wishing to participate will then put their name in a hat to be chosen at random for one of the roles.

The group will then split into three to workshop the scenes, with the audience free to move around as they wish and observe the workshop process, before presenting them to the group and getting feedback.


If you’re a writer or director who’d like to get involved, please email Playwrights’ Studio Scotland on
