New plays presented at Scarborough’s Woodend

Springboard Scriptwriters

Springboard Scriptwriters’ final event of the spring season can be seen at Woodend, The Crescent, Scarborough, on Friday June 10 at 6.30pm.

The three ‘script-in-hand’ rehearsed readings feature work by writers Colin Scales, Rosie Adams and Linda Randall.

Unlike usual rehearsed script readings, the audience members can (if they wish) give anonymous feedback on the plays they have watched.

This gives the audience the chance to get involved and also helps the writers to improve the quality of their writing.

One of the writers, Colin said: “I have always loved the writing process, but seeing and hearing the words on the page ‘come alive’ and hearing the audience reaction, make all the many hours of

writing, re-writing and rehearsing even more worthwhile.”

All of the plays have been workshopped through the scriptwriting course of the outreach department of Stephen Joseph Theatre under the tutorship of Alison Watt.

The three plays are:

Brooklyn’s Bridge by Colin Scales

Former tabloid editor Rebekah Thorne, is ghost writing billionaire Sir Jonathan Brooklyn’s life. As his mother-of-confessions is revealed, dark secrets emerge from both their distant pasts.

Davey by Rosie Adams

The journey of a young mother as school time approaches.

Desperately Seeking by Linda Randall

A lovely librarian’s search for love
