This workshop-style group focuses on writing for performance: play- and screenwriting, radio drama and monologues. A lively group where work is read aloud and then discussed in a friendly and supportive atmosphere. We've been meeting for the past year on the first Monday of the month to hear scenes being read. Occasionally we also have an interim meeting to discuss full length scripts.
What to expect at our meetings:
Writers bring scripts to be read aloud by actors and other members of the group. All members are invited to share feedback, thoughts, ideas and constructive critique for other writers. Each script will be allocated a 30 min slot. Writers are thus requested to keep their script submissions to around 10-12 pages or nor more than 10-12mins long.
After each group we tend to socialize at the Red Lion Pub across from Ealing Studios.
Rental of the room at MetFilm does cost us, so we kindly request a £3 sub to help us cover costs.
IF you're a writer...
(1) Please upload your script by the deadline provided by each meetup notice.
(2) When uploading you MUST list in the description box the names of the characters, their gender and age. If actors can double up roles, make this clear!
(3) PLEASE bring extra copies of your script for all parts!!
IF you're an Actor...
(1) Please be sure you select "YES" for the RSVP if you're available and planning on attending. Also put 'Actor' in the comments box. We understand you might not be interested in coming to the group if your not reading, that's totally fine, but we need a commitment before we can assign roles. ONLY ACTORS WHO SAY "YES" will be assigned roles. If you pick "Maybe" you will not get an assigned role, since you might not show up.
(2) AS soon as we know the required actors/readers needed we'll be in touch to assign you roles.
(3) Download the scripts the weekend before our reading to prepare for your parts.
By public transport I suggest the following options:
Ealing Broadway tube/train station is your closes transport. The studio is within walking distance and there is LOTS of really great places to grab a bite to eat or get a coffee before you arrive. Please see attached map. When you arrive, ask security for directions to Met Film. Basically, walk across the car park as far as you can go then turn right. Met Film is the last entrance on the left. There should be a sign saying which room we're in. Don't forget to call David if you need the door entry code.
So, if you're a writer interested in developing your work, please join us.
