Event description
Breaking the Fourth Wall: Writing for Non-Theatrical Spaces

About this event

Writing for non-theatre spaces opens up exciting opportunities for writers to explore the unique changes in the relationship between the audience and the play once you break through the fourth wall.

Join writers Alison Carr (The Last Quiz Night on Earth) and Becky Prestwich (Chip Shop Chips) in conversation with Box of Tricks as they draw on their combined experience of creating work that tours to pubs, village halls, rural venues and everything in between.

Alison Carr is an award-winning writer whose work has been performed throughout the UK. In 2018 she was invited on attachment with the National Theatre, and her play ‘Tuesday’ is part of the 2021 National Theatre Connections Festival. Alison is currently under commission with Stephen Joseph Theatre and Unfolding Theatre. She is one of Silent Uproar’s Troublemakers and is part of the BBC Writers Group North East Voices.

Becky Prestwich is a Manchester-born and bred writer. She is a regular writer on Holby City and Doctors. Other TV credits include Is This Sexual Harassment for BBC3. She has written five Afternoon Dramas for BBC Radio 4 - including the Tinniswood Award nominated, Just the Three Of Us. As a playwright, she specialises in work with community casts and in non-traditional theatre spaces, including Chip Shop Chips (Box of Tricks Theatre) and Under the Market Roof (Junction 8 Theatre). She wrote One Night in Bolton, an audio drama performed by the Young Octagon Company and See You at the Octagon as part of Bolton Octagon’s warm up season.
