Writing Workshops have been very much at the root of our professional theatre productions, TRADING Local TRADE IT Anyone can write five minutes…

Show of Strength Theatre Company has run series of workshops for writers, encouraging new writing.
Most recently writers have developed five minute monologues (approx 1000 words) with a focus on local, independent shops and retail experiences. A selection of these works were professionally produced in a series of exciting performances in the shops themselves on February 21st 2009.



Show Of Strength is unable to read unsolicited scripts. With funding largely project based we work with writers project by project. See WRITERS for those we have worked with, or whose work we have produced.

In 2006 we produced work by 20 Bristol writers for our WAITING project at The Southville Centre. We are now developing a range of projects for 2007-2009, and plan to commission new work from a variety of writers (from Bristol and beyond) over the next three years.

If you’d like information about furture projects send us an email so we have your address. DON’T send anthing else at this stage. We’ll email information when we have it, and put it here on the website.
