First Draft Theatre

First Draft is a vibrant, new theatre company dedicated to producing cutting edge theatre: two new, short pieces of new writing each month, written and rehearsed in that time.

Each new piece is based on some current event, either political, social or personal, and is tailor made for the cast involved in each piece by the writer, using ideas generated by the cast and director: we do not usually produce pre-conceived scripts.

The emphasis within the company is on exposure: exposure of writers, directors and actors. What we expose is talent, the talent of those people who previously sat at home going, "I just want to be acting!", "I just want to write something that will actually be performed!", "I just want to direct something new, but where do I start?" and allow them to write, direct, act. At First Draft we work hard to put the right people in touch with the right people, giving them performance space, some publicity and then seeing what happens.
