Extant Pathways Writers Showcase


16 Pathways Writers completed the course, which included: Pathways Writers Launch and Round Table, masterclasses, mentoring, and preparation for the Pathways Writers Showcase.

Each Pathways Writer had eight sessions with a mentor. Our Pathways Writer Mentors were: Mandy Redvers-Rowe, Daisy Higman, Darren Rapier, Steve Harper, Amy Bethan Evans and Athena Stevens.

All 16 writers presented a five minute duologue at our Pathways Writers Showcase in June 2022, in Studio 4 at Brixton House. Writers were encouraged to work closely with the directors during the rehearsal process, which resulted in some inspiring collaborations.

Our 17th performance of the Showcase was Open Script by Maria Oshodi. This was a five minute devised performance reflecting on the research that Grace Joseph undertook in 2021-22 -following the Pathways Writers Launch in March 2021 – on access to scripts for visually impaired artists, and starting to look at how the issues raised around access to scripts can be addressed.
