Scripts Aloud

Scripts Aloud began in mid 2015. Diana Atkins moved to Manchester from London and wanted to find a group similar to the network she was involved with in London. After searching around, Diana found there was nothing quite like it; so posted a message out on Manchester Independent Theatre seeking expressions of interest.

Naturally, the post was inundated with responses. All varieties of creative people wanted to contribute to regular new script reading events. Hannah got in touch offering help in producing and the two of them have been managing Scripts Aloud ever since. With the help of the incredibly generous Lisa Connor at the Kings Arms – we now have over 100 professional actors on our database and a combined network of over 400 creatives in Manchester. ​

Pieces of new writing are submitted to the group, and usually four scripts of approximately 15 minutes in length are selected to be performed on the last monday of every month. To submit a piece of writing or be added onto their database of directors and actors contact them here
