North West Playwrights at 24:7 2012
Here at North West Playwrights we are thrilled to announce that our long standing tradition of high quality rehearsed readings at 24:7 continues. Having carefully selected the most exciting four plays of those that didn't quite make it to the main festival, we are really looking forward to seeing the writing come to life with the help of professional directors and actors. All the shows will take place at 3 Minute Theatre in Affleck's Palace, Oldham Street, at 6pm. For more information and how to book, please click here. And of course, check out the 24:7 website for details on all the fantastic shows and events taking place in Manchester very soon. Here is a run down of the new writing we'll be showcasing - we hope to see you there!

By Chris Salt
It's just before Xmas and family, friends, lovers and loneliness are
uppermost in the minds of the drinkers in The Circus. As histories and
hopes are rehearsed in front of strangers, will anyone leave the bar
unscathed or unchanged?

RED LIGHT SOHO
By Phil Setren
A fragile man is on the run from the Soho underworld, and from the lover who's threatening to steal his home and identity.

Wednesday 25 July:
JUDAS WAS A GINGER
By Ryan Cerenko
You want to end it all; it just so happens so does your work colleague on the same night in the same office. Trying to be 'Mr Perfect' in today's world can lead to some serious delusions about the world. Can you realise this before one of you leaves it for good?
Directed by Sue Reddish
Thursday 26 July:
BED AND BREAKFAST
By Jayne Lewis
Man and Wife come to realise this isn't quite the life they had planned, and decide to strike while the iron is hot, and seek change. A witty story of an average romance, punctuated by classic love songs from several decades.
Directed by Joyce Branagh
