Write UP!

Write UP!

The Old Rep’s new writing group...

Our brand-new writing group Write UP! offers a welcoming, friendly, supportive space where you can develop your writing and meet other writers. You can enjoy a range of activities and exercises to kick-start your creative juices and get that script or performance piece started, continued or finished, with the opportunity to showcase extracts at any stage of development at our popular scripts-in-development night, Up To Scratch 

Why not come along and try it out? It takes place fortnightly on a Thursday in our Studio space from 6pm - 8pm. It's free of charge plus tea and coffee will be provided. Please see the full list of dates below:

  • Thursday 23 May
  • Thursday 6 June
  • Thursday 20 June

If you have any enquiries, or would like to be involved, please contact our Theatre Manager, Darren Knapton, via email.

We hope to see you there,




"Really enjoyed it, been very productive"

"It's really good, nice to have a variety of people. Interested to see how it progresses"

" Really liked it, feeling a lot more creative, trying things I'd never thought I'd try"

"Delighted to see pieces develop, really enjoyed the night"

"Fun, interesting, good to have company and hear other people's thoughts"

"Hideously grateful to share any of my work, and to write is always good. I'm content to be here"

"Coming here is a little adrenaline shot of creativity, I'm thinking about and looking forward to it a few days before, and for a few days after. I wrote more than I’ve done for a long time, and I went to the theatre twice between the last and this session, and I wouldn’t have done that otherwise"
