Billie’s Box of Tricks
Squad grad Billie Collins is currently on attachment with Box of Tricks Theatre as part of the 2019-2020 PlayBox cycle. PlayBox is a year-long writer-on-attachment programme offering bespoke residencies to three early-career North West playwrights to write a new play with support from Box of Tricks. Over the course of a year-long attachment, each playwright receives a seed commission to write a new play with dramaturgical support from the Box of Tricks team and workshop development with actors, culminating in a public rehearsed reading.
“I am absolutely buzzing to work with Box of Tricks,” said Billie. “The enthusiasm, care and warmth with which they support new (Northern!) voices is ace, and I feel incredibly lucky to have this opportunity to develop my own work and to pick the brains of other fantastic writers!”
