We are now casting for Home: A Project for New Writers.

Produced by Framework Theatre in association with Vanishing Point. Funded by the National Lottery through Creative Scotland. 

“Home” is a series of four short plays written by young, female/non-binary writers based in the Lothians. Each play tackles a different version of what home means to those writers and showcases their talent.
The production itself will be ‘half-scale’, with minimal tech and set. The focus is really on bringing the scripts to life. Each 15-minute piece has a full day rehearsal, followed by a tech/dress at the venue before the show on the Friday that week.
We are looking for a 7-person rep-style cast to bring these plays to life and show off the amazing work of these new playwrights.
