The Write Angles Festival is now entering it's fifth year.  Formally known as the Southend Playwriting Festival, the Festival was established to bring 'new voices' to the theatre and create a platform where audiences could watch new theatre pieces and playwrights get the chance to see their works performed.  Each year we select the best plays from those submitted and present these as rehearsed readings.  Working with local professional actors, we perform at the Dixon Studio, Palace Theatre, Westcliff on Sea, Essex, UK.  In 2015 the Festival will form part of a wider performing arts festival in the region, so selected plays will be performed in the second half of the evening on Wednesday 4th February and Thursday 5th February and for the whole evening of Friday 6th February.  At the end of the evening of the 6th February the overall Festival winner will be announced and the playwright will receive a cheque for 250.Southend International Playwrights Festival.Dixon Studio Palace Theatre, Westcliff Box Office 01702-351135Book Tickets  8, 6 or 15 season ticketPresented by Full Circle Theatre Company as part of Essex Theatre Festivalfor more details see Write Angles Website
