Café Villon 29th January 2018 – Save the Date !
Following on from November’s very well attended evening, LEAPA and NWTC are pleased to announce that the next Café Villon – an informal theatre evening – will take place on Monday 29th January. Three works will be presented: a further prize winner from last year’s LEAPA Playwriting Competition as well as extracts from two as yet unperformed plays.
For those new to the concept, Café Villon provides a platform for directors and actors to work on a piece of theatre and put it on in front of a live audience, not at performance level but as a rehearsed play reading with scripts. The actors have an understanding of the text and the action, thus making the experience more satisfying than just a reading.
After each presentation there is a general discussion with the director and actors, enabling feedback and insights – and possibly some reworking. This is followed by a break for drinks and a chat before going on to the next piece.
Café Villon is an informative and entertaining social evening for people interested in theatre to meet in a relaxed and friendly way. Although club evening, it is open to the public so please feel free to bring friends and pass this information on to others who might be interested.
There are plenty of roles to be filled in the planned works, so if anyone would like to participate as an actor (or director), please contact John Brigg (details below).
