Returning to the Lyric for its third year, our latest Fast & Loose project has drawn to a close. Four new mini-plays written overnight in this twenty-four hour play project. A bold and often breathless experiment in playmaking and inspiring creativity, all housed in the Lyric over twenty-four hours. From 9pm on Friday night, four playwrights had only 12 hours to craft a new short play each. At 9am the following day four directors and casts had a further 12 hours to rehearse the plays, all premiering that very night in the Lyric's Naughton Studio. Drama doesn't come any fresher.
We're expanding the help and advice we can give fellow artists with a new Services programme. Have a look at our list of initial services, that we've aimed at a range of artists and tried to make as flexible and useful as possible.
The creation of theatre experiences is shared by a whole production team. Playwrights' Bootcamp is a new venture that lets a group of up to ten writers dive into theatre as a live and intensely collaborative medium.
