People who have saved this event:


Come and see the short pieces we've selected to shortlist for our Showcase competition at The Hen & Chickens, 30th January at 7pm. The winner from the shortlisted performances, will go on to have their work developed and staged as a full length theatre production.


Our New Writing Nights are all about helping writers, actors and directors improve their craft, to meet new creative new people, and help spark great ideas whilst never forgetting entertaining you, our audience.

So head out to the Hen & Chickens and grab a pint of old traditional...

... Watch! – Our latest outstanding selection of rehearsed play readings.

... Take part! - Help the writers, actors and directors get the feedback they need. Jot down your thoughts, chat to our roving reporters, tweet at us, or chat to the artists in the bar afterwards. Tear it apart or tell us you love it - feedback is the name of the game!

... Don't worry that it's a school night! - We like to run a tight ship; if you need your beauty sleep, you can be on your way home by 9.30pm.

... But, never say never?! There's always someone who wants to stay for an extra pint, so never fear the lonely bar blues if you want to stay an extra hour or three.

Line-up to be released very soon. Deadline for writing submissions is 30th December, so get submitting to submissions@blackshawonline.com folks!
