What is Stage to Page?
Stage to Page is a voluntary collective of writers, directors and actors who meet monthly to conduct short public workshops of scenes from brand new plays.
This lively exploration of new writing is an opportunity for writers to be actively involved in an exciting, short workshop process, hear their work being read and get feedback from directors, actors and audiences.
Stage to Page is led by a different guest each month, drawn from Scotland’s prominent writers, directors or theatre practitioners.
Stage to Page facilitators are: Alex Cox, Colin Healy, Lisa Keddie, Linda Duncan McLaughlin, Fergus Mitchell and Julie Tsang.
