out of the shadows
a new writing festival
This festival celebrated new writing. Together with Theatre N16,
Colour & Light presented this brand new festival spanning over
three days. 12 writers were given the opportunity to write a brand
new piece and have it performed with a professional cast, have it directed by some of the U.K's best up and coming young directors, including likes of Kennedy Bloomer (The Hope Theatre, Artistic Director) and Lee Dillon Stuart (Big Room Theatre Company, Theatre In The Fields). This opportunity was free for all writers.
The festival was a hugely important step for us as creatives; some of the pieces have continued on further, for example DMC by Amy Kitts has gone on to be performed at the Tristan Bates, and Exactly Different by Meg Pickup has inspired the creation of an all-female theatre collective, Exactly Different Theatre, who went on to perform Conversations With Ed at the Bread & Roses Theatre in Clapham. They continue to create their own work today.
we would like to thank
Stockwell Playhouse & all of the writers, directors & performers
for their support.
