The concept is a mad hatched plan from one of the writers Richard Stockwell and Alphabetti’s own Ali Pritchard. The aim is to for the three writers to write a brand new play in front of the audience - there will be a type writer, a computer and quill. The writers will hand each line, stage direction and anything else they fancy to the actor for them to act out in front of your eyes! They’ll each have to react to what the other writes… anything really could happen!
The brave writers:
Gary Kitching is an actor and writer. He's been a performer for 20 years working in theatre, tv and film. In 2014 Gary started his own theatre company - Gary Kitching & Co. Which has now produced two fantastic productions: Dead To Me (2014) & Me & Mr C(2015) both went on small national tours and received praise from audience and critic alike.
