Open Door new writing showcase

Three inspiring nights at Birmingham Repertory Theatre in 2014…

REP Night 1 featured hard-hitting contemporary drama The Predator from Sayan Kent, innovative stage adaptation of a WWI diary A Diary without Dates by Vanessa Oakes, and a thought-provoking political piece from Tim Stimpson called Liberal Guilt about the early days of the Lib Dem coalition.

At REP Nights 2 enjoyed a rip-roaring musical comedy called Roller Diner from Stephen Jackson and a dark and intimate drama about post-natal depression called Post by Helen Kelly.

Our third and final night, REP Night 3, featured two contrasting family dramas: Friday Afternoons from Liz John (directed by Janice Connolly) and Never Let Me Down by Julia Wright (directed by Ali Belbin).

As well as helping to develop some exciting new stageplays, our Open Door programme has also showcased the considerable talents of Midland actors and directors.  Their input was greatly appreciated by BOLDtext playwrights and by our enthusiastic audience.

Our three Rep Nights were funded by Arts Council England.
