The Project

Scriptworks have secured Arts Council funding to support our local writing community in the development of 4 new 10m scripts for radio. Development work for the writers will include a Scriptworks session, one-to-one sessions with professional radio mentors and a dramaturgy workshop. The scripts will be performed live at Contact in Space 2. The scripts will then professionally recorded and produced in the studio and aired on ALL FM as part of Contact’s Noise Generation radio show. This show is broadcast the last Tuesday of every month. The final mastered recordings will also be made available on Soundcloud.

Acting Requirement

Actors will be expected to be versatile and adaptable in the studio, and have good ensemble skills.

The two Scriptworks sessions on the 14th and 15th of May will take place in the Meeting Room at Contact and will be the first opportunity for the writers to have their work read.

Subject to mentor and director availability, the Live Performance at Contact will be rehearsed in various times and locations through the week beginning 21st May. Actors will need to be available for at least one day, spread over the week.

Show call for the Live Performance will be 10am on Monday 28th May. With the performance starting at 7.30pm

Later that week we will be working in the recording studio for a maximum of two days per actor.
