Chester Performs are inviting writers aged 16 – 24 years to submit script proposals for a one act play, to be performed in August at Grosvenor Park Open Air Theatre.

We are looking for a 30 – 40 minute prequel to Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night. However, what, where and when the action takes place is entirely up to you!

Up to five writers will be selected to attend a workshop led by the multi-award winning writer Glyn Maxwell. The session will cover script proposals, offer feedback, advice and next steps.

One writer from the session will then be given the opportunity to develop their ideas into a play directed by the Bolton Octagon’s Associate Director Elizabeth Newman. The play will be performed by the 2012 Grosvenor Park Young Theatre Company on 12th and 13th August.
