Act Write Direct
*Are you a keen drama writer, who would love to see your work performed?
*Are you a committed actor, ‘resting’ between main productions and wanting to exercise your skills?
*Maybe you’ve thought about directing, but it’s all a bit daunting?
Then Act Write Direct could be for YOU.
It’s Creative and Inclusive. It’s by the members for the members. It's fun. AWD is for practising and
developing skills, and for trying new ones. A key principle is including all our members who want to be
involved and supporting each other. We write, we act, we direct, we rehearse and finally we perform in a
studio-type production before our families and members. We are fortunate to be supported by Players’ experts in
stage management and design. AWD was first trialled in 2018 by a small group of pioneers and in 2019 it was
decided to offer the idea to the full membership.
