From page to stage…
What next? That, to coin a phrase, is the question. Any writer faces this question at various stages in the development of a script. Got a completed draft sitting on the hard drive, but not sure if it’s going anywhere? We know the feeling. Nearly there, but can’t quite nail the landing? We know that feeling too. What’s the next step along the way? Our partners have written, produced, directed, designed and performed in many, many shows. We can help…
There’s no better way to find your voice than hearing actors speak your words. Rehearsed readings are a fantastic way to bring the life of your script into focus, whether it’s a complete script or just one Act or even a single scene.
Polymorph will find the actors to match your characters, then our resident director will rehearse the script with them, in consultation with you, of course, and stage a rehearsed reading to a ticketed audience tailored to your needs. (Please note, these events will currently be online, but could be in person once that option is safely available.) The audience might be industry professionals, or drawn from the general public, or a mix depending on the kind of feedback you want. If you don’t want an audience yet, we can do it just for you.
We’ll follow the reading with a tailored and moderated feedback session – perhaps a Q&A with just yourself and the actors, or a more open (but still moderated) session with feedback from the audience too. We can also offer the opportunity for supplementary written feedback if you would like that.
Book a Rehearsed Reading with Polymorph and find your voice when actors speak your words.
A much more informal way of getting much needed feedback on a piece of writing. Polymorph will organise getting a small number of writers together to read and discuss their own work. We’ll moderate the event, ensuring that each writer gets enough time for constructive and fair feedback.
Obviously, this kind of event can only take place with a suitable number of participants, typically 4-6 writers, so we’ll compile a waiting list and then organise the events on an ad-hoc basis. (Please note, these events will currently be online, but could be in person once that option is safely available.)
Get yourself on the list for the next Writers’ Circle with Polymorph and we’ll bring you together.
