22 January – Shorts Night

On 22 January, we will be holding a Shorts Night to open our 2019 readings.

During a Shorts Night, we will be hearing a selection of works that are 10 minutes or less. It is an opportunity to get feedback on short scripts, treatments, outlines and extracts of new pieces.

After the Shorts Night, we will be holding readings on the following dates: 5 February, 19 February, 5 March, 19 March, 2 April and 16 April. During these readings we will hear full-length scripts of theatrical and radio plays and screenplays.

4 December – The Box by Richard Cosgrove

The final reading of the 2018 run of ScriptTankwill be next Tuesday – 4 December. We will be hearing the first draft of a screenplay from Richard Cosgrove: The Box.

After a simple heist goes wrong, three criminals – a hacker, a hired gun, and a getaway driver – gather in a locked apartment with their score. If they can survive the next two hours, they are promised the biggest payouts of their lives. Each is ready to betray and be betrayed, but none are ready for what is inside the “box”.

The Box is a micro-budget science-fiction thriller about our culture’s reliance on technology and capitalism.

As this is the last reading for 2018, ScriptTank’s organisers wish you all a happy holiday season.

We will be returning in January 2019.
