3 or 4 for 1 or 2

October 2017​​

A night of three or four new plays, performed by one or two actors in collaboration with the York branch of Script Yorkshire.

Script Yorkshire is an organisation that promotes and supports writers of stage, screen and radio scripts throughout Yorkshire.  The York branch has a successful programme, called Script Factor, where writers compete in heats to write a play, no longer that fifteen minutes in length, to be performed by actors who only see the play on the evening of competition.  They are presented, ‘script in hand’, and are by their very nature, a bit rough and ready.


3 or 4 for 1 or 2 gives a platform for slightly longer pieces that have been fully rehearsed and developed by the writer, together with a director and the actors under the auspices of Wildgoose Theatre.  We hope that this will become another useful stream of activity to allow writers to have work performed in front of an audience.


For our first outing you will see four plays, and during the course of the evening you will hopefully laugh, cry and, maybe, become just a little afraid.



What really happens in the back room of a charity shop?
If the painter is so chatty, what is he hiding, and why?


The rumours about the hearse-like car prowling the streets of Russia abducting children cannot be true.  Can they? 

What does ittake for a young mother to escape from environmental calamity and at what personal cost?
