New play hatchery


Are you an actor, a playwright, a director or a willing audience member interested in being involved in hatching new works in Nelson on a regular basis?

We want to launch a relaxed gathering of artists, audience and friends to help new and emerging writers develop their plays, by supporting rehearsed readings in front of an audience. After the reading, the audience will be invited to discuss the play with the creative team, ask questions and say what they liked and didn’t like about the script. The feedback is to help the playwright with the next draft before going into production.

We are already aware of some new plays close to needing an audience. Perhaps you have a new work that would benefit from some creative support.
