Six New Plays
This Summer, Squad 8 writer and Project H Workshop Leader, Lydia Marchant produced Hull Young Playwrights – a playwriting project for 6 writers, aged 16-21 – funded by ACE and supported by the Writing Squad and Hull Truck Theatre.
The group took part in workshops at Hull Truck Theatre, run by Lydia and director, Oliver O’Shea and Q and A’s with creatives Steve Dearden, Tom Wells and John Godber, before being tasked to come up with their own 5-10 minute monologues or duologues.
Their pieces were directed by Oliver and performed on Hull Truck Theatre’s main stage by a professional cast, Jo Mousley, Robert Wade, Beth Walker and Kamal Kaan. For a lot of the group, this was the first time any of their work had been staged. All the work has also been recorded and you can listen to them here in Issue 10 of PUSH.
