Continuing on from the success of IronClad Improv - the Sunday night drop in classes and the popular long form courses - comes CAST IRON THEATRE.
CAST IRON is based at the DukeBox Theatre, the intimate venue housed at the Iron Duke, where local playwrights, directors and actors come together for a regular night of brand new short plays.
You can write short plays, act in them, and direct them ... CAST IRON is a true collective, in that we meet regularly to share ideas and writing - get encouragement and suggestions from our fellow members before finishing the final draft - then in each CAST IRON night (usually around 4+ times a year) our small rep-style company produces around 7 brand new short plays written, performed and directed by ourselves.
It's a wonderful opportunity if you're a first time writer or director, because the ethos of the company is that we help and support each other: it's a great way to test and develop your skills. Rather than submit your work blindly and coldy to a panel that you may never meet, each playwright (and indeed, each actor and writer) gets the chance to discuss their work in progress at our regular meetings at the Iron Duke.
