OFF THE PAGE is a group of aspiring writers in the Acton area that focuses on writing for performance.
This includes screenwriting, playwriting, radio drama and poetry. The group will be presenting their dramatic writing at the West London Literary Festival.
Seven works will be ‘performed’ over the 2 hour session at the Community Tent (Acton Green, Turnham Green Terrace W4) each one being introduced by its author. Actors will take the roles of the main characters. OFF THE PAGE writing group encourages budding scriptwriters to develop their work for performance. ‘This is a great opportunity for us to showcase London writing and acting talent’ says OTP founder, Kate Buchanan. ‘Using actors in our rehearsed reading really brings our writing to life!’
The 2nd annual West London Literary Festival is part of the popular Ealing Summer series of festivals.
