Exciting Volunteer Opportunity

Theatre Wakefield’s New Works Program seeking readers

As some of you may know, Theatre Wakefield has had for some years a program offering free script help to local playwrights. The 2019 program is called “From the Page to the Stage”. Each year, we accept up to twelve script treatments and this spring we received a full compliment.

David Park, and our resident dramaturge, Peter James Haworth, are seeking persons who are interested to read at least one script and provide feedback to Peter as he evaluates and formulates his support. David has spoken to some of you already. Experience reading and/or attending plays is useful but not necessarily required so please consider this offer.

The commitment would be to read the script upon receipt and provide a few notes or verbal feedback to Peter over the next month. This is a volunteer opportunity.

Please reply to David Park by email to by July 12th.
