Beginnings – A New Writing Festival



MISSION STATEMENT – To encourage and develop new writing.

Beginnings is a one day festival of new writing.  We put a call out for new writing scripts of no more than 2,000 words (approximately 10 minutes) of brand new writing that has never had a public showing of any sort.

In conjunction with So&So Arts Club, Kat Rogers (of KatAlyst Production Company) and Louise Jameson are gathering a troupe of 10 actors to perform 10 plays this coming September, (13th September is the event day) *TBC

Kat Rogers and Louise Jameson will be directing all of the plays

Based on audience feedback the writer of the most popular play will go forward to receive a rehearsed reading (the following year/September/Autumn) of a more fully developed piece of the writer’s choice.

This first Beginnings Festival is the brain child of Kat Rogers and Louise Jameson in conjunction with So&So Arts Club.


Many thanks to all the writers who submitted their work. We had a really hard time shortlisting, and finally settled on 10 plays, we are delighted to announce the winning pieces are;
