The Andrea Project: Discover Tomorrow's Playwrights

Support young Sheffield writers and enjoy their voices in this special performance of short plays. Out of Joint theatre company and Sheffield Theatres have been working with eight talented Sheffield teenagers from diverse backgrounds to give them the skills, ambition and opportunity to become playwrights.

Our participating writers have been given a course of workshops with playwright Stacey Sampson. Now they're each writing their own short play - inspired by our upcoming show Close Quarters- they'll see them performed by professional actors.

Want to hear what young people from Sheffield care about? Come and be entertained by these brilliant and imaginative writers as they share their work on a professional stage.


About The Andrea Project

Inspired by playwright Andrea Dunbar, who grew up on a Bradford council estate and had her first play staged at London's Royal Court Theatre when she was 18, The Andrea Project exists to inspire young people with a passion for writing to become playwrights, whatever their background.

Thanks to generous donations we've been able to keep The Andrea Project completely free so as to make it as accessible as possible. We even offer to cover all travel costs. We're very grateful for your support.

Take a look at some of the feedback from the participants of last year's Andrea Project, which took place in London and Bolton:

“One of the best things I’ve ever done … I’m so thankful for the opportunity.” - Katy

"The experiences from that day will stick with me for the rest of my life" - Abi

“I'd like to carry on writing. This won’t be the end of me and my work.” - Caitlyn, Participant

Running time: About 1 hour and 30 minutes (including a 15 minute interval)
