Theatre By Numbers presents a night of story-telling by some of the most exciting writers coming from the North West.

Charlie Mortimer is a North West Theatre Director who has been working with New Writing for Theatre since 2008.  Throughout that time she has worked with various new, and experienced, writers to bring their work from early drafts to full first productions.  Her theatre company Theatre By Numbers finds ways of creating, developing, engaging and producing new theatre for the North West.

This year saw a collaboration with playwright Helen East in an exploration for best practice of working with new writing.  It was a successful and productive project looking at processes and ideas of how to put the writer at the heart of the creative process in those early days of scripting.

Now Charlie Mortimer, Helen East, Rob Johnston and Lindsay Avery have brought together six intriguing and exciting stories which have been designed to thrill, inform and entertain.  With existing and new members of the Theatre By Numbers team we shall showcase some of the best talents in the area.

The evening shall consist of the following pieces:

True Love by Helen East performed by David Allen

Romance like you’ve never seen it before.

The Monster’s Tale by Rob Johnston performed by Adam Urey

A classic twist.

Clap. Pray. Nod. by Lindsay Avery performed by Andy Avery

A father’s devotion (and concentration) is tested.

The Gift by Helen East performed by Charlie Mortimer

Revenge is a dish best served…however.

The Boys Race by Rob Johnston performed by Kat Godfrey

A story of discovery.

No Change by Lindsay Avery performed by Andy Madden

What would you do if the world stopped working?

Come and sample some of the best work being created today in the area.
