Playwrights’ Studio, Scotland presents Talkfest at the Tron
5 Billion Years written by Jim Bay
The Bedding Tunes written by Nuala O'Sullivan
Peter Arnott and a team of actors will encounter two new plays by Jim Bay and Nuala O'Sullivan in a live experiment. During the day, the actors immediate first responses to the unseen texts as they unfold will be used to find each play's strengths and weaknesses. Peter will then compile extracts from both plays to be presented on the same night, bringing the audience into this close encounter with new writing.
TalkFest is Playwrights’ Studio’s professional and public workshop programme. TalkFest takes place at the Edinburgh Festival (at the Traverse and Fringe Central) and at various locations throughout the year. It includes script development workshops, readings, skills’ workshops and masterclasses with Scotland’s leading playwrights and theatre-makers.
