Silent Uproar and Middle Child present a showcase for new writers to see early drafts of their plays performed for the first time.

 

These short performances will feature professional actors, but no set, props or costume.

Casino by Larner Wallace-Taylor 

It’s January 1974 and Linda and Tina have had it with Wigan. They’re planning their escape, away from the strikes and the power cuts.

But when Tina’s brother Ant introduces them to his new favourite club, they’re drawn into a world of northern soul, fashion and amphetamines that they never knew existed.

They’ve finally found a place to call home – but how long can they hold onto it?

 

BSL performance

The performance on Thursday 24 March will be interpreted by Dave Wycherley.

 

Soul Syndicate DJs

Soul Syndicate will be playing classic northern soul tunes in the ground floor cafe after the performance on Saturday 26 March. Entrance is free.
