Welcome to the website for Gloucester Scriptorium, the collaborative project fostering new theatre writing and producing professional theatre in Gloucester, UK.
Writing in and about the City of Gloucester
FOLLOW US: We have a mailing list you can join if you’d like to be kept informed of upcoming events and performances. Just use the subscribe bar at the top of this screen. We also have a Facebook group – see the link on our contacts page .
About Us: We are a collective of writers, all with different levels of skill, but all with some productions under out belts. See the writers page for more information about individuals in the group.
Our current home is the Laud Room in the Parliament Suite of Gloucester Cathedral, where we meet monthly to explore different aspects of writing for theatre.
Our first project ‘Only in Gloucester’ was funded by the Arts Council and you can find out more about that by clicking the tab above.
Our second project ‘Talking Objects’ is a series of audio monologues inspired by objects at the Gloucester Life Museum. Officially launched in September 2016 these can all be listened to on this website – on the Museums Monologue tab.
Our third project ‘Tapestry’ was a weaving together of all the writers work ending in a performance at Gloucester Cathedral in May 2017. Once again we received Arts Council funding for this project.
Our fourth project ‘The Gloucester Citizen’ was an evening of monologues performed at the Fountain Inn in May 2018, where we raised funds towards our next big project.
We’re now busy working out the details of our next project, which will be an exciting piece once again drawing on stories from the city of Gloucester.
