About this Event

Brighton 15/16th FEB 2020

Cry Havoc Theatre Company develop and produce new innovative writing often working with international companies. Our most recent productions were in partnership with LABryinth Theater Company New York .

Our new writing and acting programme Unleash will begin focused development workshops in 2020. Workshop/ rehearsal programmes are planned for London, Brighton and Crawley. Participants in Cry Havoc workshops will be eligible to be part of this new inclusive, developmental company. Scripts workshopped through Unleash may be taken forward to main stage production by the company. Actors who work with us on our courses may well be taken forward to be part of the company.

Cry Havoc have recently developed and produced the work of New York playwright Maggie Diaz Bofill. Her work was seen in Edinburgh and transfers to the Kings Head this October. Artistic Director of Cry Havoc, Claudine Sinnett will be working with both actors and writers throughout the course of the weekend.

Throughout the weekend writers will also be given the opportunity to work alongside Isabel Dixon. She trained on the Royal Court, Lyric Hammersmith and Soho Theatre Writers' Programmes and her first play The Plough is currently under option for screen with Seahorse Films and through their support it's been read by a number of other production companies including Film4. Short plays or readings of her work have been performed at a number of venues including the Old Vic, Lyric Hammersmith, the Arcola, BAFTA, Tristan Bates and Rich Mix. Alongside playwriting she works as a dramaturg and facilitator and co-runs the London Playwriting Lab at theatre deli, and reads for a number of venues including The Space and The Pleasance.
