NEW WORKS DEPT #4 – ‘Bones’ by Madonna Davies
WHAT IS THE “NEW WORKS DEPARTMENT”?:
The New Works Department is a program that takes the development of new scripts/projects to the next level. This is the ‘juice’, the stuff not usually seen by people outside the theatre world. The New Works Department will open its doors and invite you in to be part of the development of this creative theatre project.
Following a week of development, we present the work in a one-night only public Show & Tell event, followed by a Q&A between the audience and the creative teams. You will hear the work being read, observe the actors working with the director, listen in on the conversations between playwright, dramaturg and director. You will see creativity in action, as the work is stretched and pulled into shape.
WHAT WORK IS BEING DEVELOPED?
Bones by Madonna Davies:
