|Theatre Alba Leisure Group|
A very successful acting / rehearsal group which began 20 years ago.
The group is open to all between the ages of 18 and 80, of all experience levels, including professional, semi-professional and amateur actors. The group re-forms annually to create 1 or 2 productions over a 6 month period.
Acting skills are learned and developed by rehearsing with a professional director for an actual production.
If you want something rewarding and inspiring to do after your nineto-five job or daily routine, we'd like to hear from you. While it may only be for a bit of fun and recreation, the Leisure Company has attained a reputation for the production of plays to a very high standard in Edinburgh halls and venues and occasionally at the Edinburgh Fringe.
No Experience Necessary
A Place For Anyone Over Age 18
The 2015-16 rehearsals will take place in Portobello
St John’s Church Hall, Brighton Place, Portobello, Edinburgh EH15 1LP
Wednesday Evenings 8.00-10.00pm
First Meeting 23 September
As the rehearsals are professionally directed, there is a small cost which averages out at £5 per rehearsal.

By accident I discovered that the famous play (and later a film) “Hobson’s Choice” by Harold Brighouse had originally been written as a novel. The play ends when Maggie and Willie Mossop take over Henry Hobson’s (Maggie’s father) shoe business. At the end of the novel Maggie and Willie have a son called Henry. This is my attempt at a sequel.

Female script recording|
I need a 2000 word script recording (female voice) and I just wondered if there are any drama students who may like to earn a bit of extra cash.
I can send the script - I just need it recording as an mp3 or wav file so that I can play it on my Mac computer.
I would be willing to pay obviously but don’t have much of a budget so just wondered if there is anyone interested and what they would charge?

|The British Theatre Challenge
We would like to thank everyone who entered the British Theatre challenge 2015. The diversity of styles from plays dealing with subjects such as war torn Israel and mental illness to supermarket shopping has been immense. Our readers have been struck by the fact there have been fewer comedies entered this year with a larger number of plays highlighting military conflict - a sign of the times perhaps.
Choosing ten plays has been an incredibly difficult task, well done to those writers who were chosen for the shortlist but we also highly commend all writers who entered their plays, it's no easy feat; "Do you know what a playwright is? A playwright is someone who lets his guts hang out on the stage." Edward Albee.
We're delighted to announce that the final 10 winning plays have been selected and posted on the Sky Blue Website. Congratulations to everyone who entered the competition - It's been a pleasure reading all of your scripts over the past few months so please, keep up the awesome writing!
As you know the British Theatre Challenge is a huge undertaking - Although we ask for a £15 submission fee from each writer, this is not nearly enough to cover the costs of everything we need, to ensure its success in promoting new writing. The hire of rehearsal rooms for not just one play, but for enough time to develop ten new plays, requires quite a hefty sum; securing a professional London theatre with technicians, not only for performance but also for tech runs to enable the smooth running of the plays, demands a huge outlay; paying for the filming of each performance for writers unable to attend, adds greatly to our costs and then there are costumes, props and sets - the list seems endless - the whole project gets very expensive so we’re asking for your help.
Because we love theatre and we believe in the importance of new writing to keep theatre alive, John , Anne and Rebecca, the driving force behind the British Theatre Challenge, all volunteer their services to ensure all money received goes where it does the most good - to the BTC Production in October. In addition we are indebted to our script readers who also offer their professional services free of charge.
This year we have set up a Crowdfunder scheme in order to raise some money to put towards the project. If you, or anyone you know, would like to donate towards the project then you will have a hand in making sure the BTC performances continue to promote exciting new writing, introduce inspirational playwrights and delight audiences. It is important to reach as many people as possible so please share our crowdfunder page link on social media. here
Donations will be rewarded but any amount pledged will be greatly appreciated.
You can also continue to follow the competition and support by joining us on the 23rd and 24th October at the Lost Theatre, London for the performances of the winning 10 plays.
To your writing success!
From Anne, John and Rebecca,
