New Voices is a 12 week playwriting programme for 15-17 year olds who are interested in creative writing and theatre, beginning October 2022. Participants get a chance to explore fun writing exercises, test out ideas with peers, and are guided to write their own play.
This programme is facilitated by actor and writer Miriam Needham. It will conclude with a showcase of the participants’ work in a rehearsed reading performed by professional actors at Hawk’s Well Theatre in February 2023.

On Mon 6 Feb 2023, family and friends can come and enjoy sketches and scenes written by participants in our New Voices Showcase! Over the course of 12 weeks, nine teenagers have been honing their playwriting skills and developing their craft. This showcase will be a rehearsed reading of some of their work followed by an open discussion about the process.
