WRITERS' CENTRE DECEMBER NEWSLETTERMon 17 December 2012
Hello and Merry Christmas from all here at Soho!
If you haven’t seen A CLOCKWORK ORANGE, we’d recommend you do. Directed by Alexandra Spencer-Jones, it’s an all male rendition of the Anthony Burgess book and has been causing quite a stir, in time for Christmas. It’s here until 5 January – book now though as the shows are selling out fast!
Upstairs at the moment is Jack Thorne’s MYDIDAE, a story about the darker side of love, produced by DryWrite. Drywrite, known for setting their writers a challenge – recently they gave a group of authors the task of coming up with a bit of verbatim theatre, it could either be genuine or faked, the audience were left to guess which was which. They asked BAFTA award winning writer Jack Thorne to write a play, entirely set in a bathroom.
Coming up next year the Writers Centre will be offering a range of writing workshops – take a look below for our spring line-up.
In other news, as many of you know (or have spotted), Sarah is off on maternity leave and Rebecca Gould has joined us as Creative Producer. Good luck to both!
Enjoy the rest of 2012, see you on the other side!
Steve, Rebecca, Jules and all at Soho Theatre.
