Be inspired and see things differently with a festival of short plays by our youngest writers.

Since 2018, young people aged 15 – 18 have explored and developed their creative writing skills through the Sherman’s Introduction to Playwriting programme which has helped nurture the voices of young writers. The UpRoar festival will bring together performances of work by existing and past participants.

UpRoar will also offer a platform for underrepresented voices. Young people who are neurodiverse, LGBTQIA+ or are displaced persons will take part in a series of writing workshops led by expert practitioners including Katie Elin-Salt, Sherman Literary Manager Branwen Davies and Literary Associate Alice Eklund to develop short plays. The young people will then have an opportunity to see these short pieces performed in a series of Saturday night Scratch Sessions.

Friday night performances: 24 June, 1 & 8 July, 7.30pm
Saturday night performances including Scratch Sessions: 25 June, 2 & 9 July, 7.00pm
