Duckdown Theatre

The Script Sessions is a volunteer-led script development platform for new writing, run by the Duckdown Theatre team.

Our unique process supports writers to develop their scripts through one on one tutorials and table reads by professional actors. Directors, Dramaturgs and other Writers attend the chaired feedback sessions where the philosophy is about posing questions and opening up rather than narrowing the script development process. We begin each session with a writing exercise and move the group towards practical solutions, creativity and practice that broadens possibility, as well as an academic scrutiny that ensures the detail is well cared for too.

From time to time, Duckdown publish writing briefs for competitions in order to challenge and inspire writers. A handful of scripts are chosen by our panel of readers to be developed for a showcase evening where the audience choose the winning script.
