Calling young writers and songwriters! Are you up for a grand challenge? This summer, a special group of young people aged 14-20 will take part in a summer writing intensive, developing their own original stories, songs, poems and scripts for a shared performance alongside Plymouth-based youth company Beyond Face.
The written work & music will be inspired by the theme ‘What Are You Fighting For?’ and the work of young adult writer Muhammed Khan. This writing project is the first stage of a year-long devising process which will culminate with a large-scale theatre production.
The Young Writers project will run on August 12, 13 and 14 for a three day summer writing intensive at Torre Abbey, and then be followed up with a Sunday rehearsal at the Palace Theatre in Paignton on 8th September. The final pieces will be shared in a staged reading as part of the International Agatha Christie Festival on Saturday 14 September. This project will be led by Doorstep Arts Co-Directors Jade Campbell and Erin Walcon, and supported by musician Tarrin Vane.
