14/48 Takeover is back Saturday 4th June

It’s 14/48 for all the family!

As part of The Spark Arts for children festival, 14/48 Leicester are giving 12 young writers the opportunity to create 4 short plays with the help of a team of professional writers. Across 4 days (Tuesday 31st May to Friday 3rd June – 10am to 3pm each day), the young writer’s creative skills will be stretched and developed through a series of fun exercises and activities. At the end of day 4, the 4 new plays created will be placed into sealed envelopes and selected at random by a team of professional theatre makers before staging them using the usual time-limited 14/48 process. Book a space now for just £40 for all 4 days, including lunch!
