We’re looking for eight keen young writers aged 16 or over to get involved in an exciting new project with Live Theatre, which will be running from September-November. It’s a brilliant opportunity for anyone interested in taking their writing further or with an interest in drama/ theatre/performing.

The project is called Indiana Jones and the Extra Chair, and will involve taking part in some some exclusive writing and performance workshops with poet Simon Mole and theatre director Peader Kirk to develop a piece of theatre around the subject of family gatherings, which will be performed at Live on 3 November, in the last weekend of the Juice Festival. For more information about the performance, see

To take part we need you to be 16 or over, be willing and able to take part in some weekend and evening workshops in October and do a bit of work on your writing independently between sessions. If you’re interested, email [email protected] with your name and age. There are limited places available, so make sure to sign up quickly.
