Cafe Villon 28 November 2017
The next Café Villon – the NWTC club evening named after its original venue – has been scheduled and the plays chosen. They are the first instalment of the prize winners from this year’s LEAPA Playwriting competition as well as a “surprise” workshop performance, so all new writing and all ready for their first proper outing.
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. The idea is not to present the work at performance level but as a rehearsed play reading with scripts. The actors will have an understanding of the text and the action, thus making the experience more satisfying than just a reading. And the “audience” are also free to participate!
After each presentation there is a general discussion about the piece with the director and actors enabling feedback and insights – and possibly some reworking. This will be followed by a break for drinks and 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 an NWTC 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.
