Royal Exchange Theatre: Word-In-Progress - In Association with Theatre Centre
A series of lunchtime readings presenting new and emerging work

Skylines is a development programme for professional playwrights who are interested in writing for young audiences aged 8 - 13 years old.

The Royal Exchange Theatre and Theatre Centre understand the importance of nurturing new talent for the Young People's Theatre sector, so Skylines is here to help develop future generations of playwrights to keep the industry exciting, diverse and relevant.

Playwrights from across the North have been working on the development of new ideas; exploring the imaginative possibilities and theatrical challenges of creating work for this age-group.  This will be an opportunity for the playwrights to share scenes from their work and gain invaluable feedback from the audience. 

Playwrights include:
Sarah McDonald Hughes - CHRISTMAS
James Leach - ALL THE WATER IN THE WORLD
Kellie Smith - THE SANDMAN
Eve Steele - SHOPS AND ROBBERS
Lorna Poustie - FINDING BILLY WAINWRIGHT
Chris Bush - THE OTHER SIDE OF THE PILLOW
Louise Wallwein - THE PORTAL
Sarah Carratt - BOOT CAMP
Mwewa Sumbwanyambe - UNDER THE MOONLIGHT
Ella Greenhill - UNDER THE SEA

The cast include: Fisayo Akinade, Rachel Austin (BLACK ROSES), Sushil Chudasama, Leah Hackett and Katie West (PUNK ROCK and BLITHE SPIRIT).

The pieces will be directed by Andy Barry, Ed Lewis and Holly Roughan.
