Takeover International!

The world’s quickest theatre festival is being taken over- again, but this time, we’ve gone… INTERNATIONAL! Join us for 4 plays written by Young writers in Leicester, Wolverhampton and Seattle!!!!

As part of The Spark Arts for children festival, 14/48 UK are giving 32 young writers the opportunity to create 4 short plays with the help of a team of professional writers. Across 2 days (Saturday 27th and Sunday 28th May), young writers in Leicester, Wolverhampton and Seattle will have their creative skills stretched and developed through a series of fun exercises and activities. At the end of day 2, the 4 new plays created will be placed into sealed envelopes and selected at random by a team of professional theatre makers in Leicester, Wolverhampton and Seattle, before staging them using the usual time-limited 14/48 process.
