APA have the write workshops to find new playwright talent in the North-east

Aberdeen Performing Arts (APA) are launching series of 12 practical play writing workshops to find and encourage new playwrights in the North-east.

Heading up the sessions will be Aberdeen’s own playwright, actress and tutor Lesley Hart and there will be guest sessions from some of Scotland’s leading writers David Grieg, Zinnie Harris, Rona Munro (tbc) and Frances Poet.

APA, the company behind His Majesty’s Theatre, The Lemon Tree and Music Hall, will launch the workshops next month and they will run twice a month on Sunday afternoons, until September.

To apply for a place on the course, budding playwrights have until Friday, February 28, to send in a 500-word play for Aberdeen, plus up to 10 pages of creative writing and a covering letter to creativelearning@aberdeenperformingarts.com.

“We are looking for brilliant new playwrights with exciting and original ideas, stories with an urgency to be told, based on true or imagined events, in any style or genre,” said APA’s director of programming and creative projects Ben Torrie.

“Aberdeen Performing Arts is committed to cultivating local theatre artists and audiences by introducing initiatives including the successful first season of A Play, A Pie and A Pint at The Lemon Tree in autumn 2013.

“The playwrights’ workshop programme will allow us to continue to support new world-class theatre generated here in the North-east; to nurture new dramatic voices – talented writers with an impulse and desire to write for theatre, whether they have before or not.

“We hope this programme will generate new plays for future seasons of A Play, A Pie and A Pint, and hopefully for a more extensive programme of new work in the future. Our main ambition is to invest in local talent and create a platform for new voices, stories and ideas.”

The workshop series aims to strike a creative balance between examining the building blocks of plays and encouraging writers to experiment and take risks.

The workshops will be held on Sunday afternoons at The Lemon Tree, and are free of charge – the provision dates are March 9 and 23; April 6 and 20, May 4 and 18, June 15 and 19, August 10 and 14, and September 7.

Manfred said he didn't know that the Marlins' new owners planned to tear it washington nationals jersers down
In the early moments of atlanta braves jersers the interview, Le Batard asked Manfred whether he knew prior to the recent sale to the group oakland athletics jersers fronted by Bruce Sherman and Jeter whether the new owners planned to slash payroll. After some prodding (and Le Batard's saying that the commissioner was lying), Manfred answered, "We do not get involved in operating-level decisions in the ownership approval process."

"We did not have player-specific plans from the Miami Marlins or any other team that has been in the ownership miami marlins jersers process. Those are decisions that the individual owners make, and they do not have to be cleared by us or approved by us. ... Those are local decisions that really are not part of the approval process. Those are decisions that the individual owners make, and they do not have to be cleared with us or approved by us."

Manfred went on to say that he didn't receive a payroll plan from the Marlins until two days prior to his interview with Le Batard. More: "We don't get into, are you going to trade 'Player X' or 'Player Y' at a particular point in time, nor do we ask them to make a commitment to people before they even got in and made an evaluation of their talent level, their ability to win with the people that st. louis cardinals jersers they have. That's just not how the ownership process works."

But some of that may not be true
Here's a key excerpt from a los angeles angels of anaheim jersers must-read Barry Jackson piece in the Miami Herald:

A source directly involved in the Marlins sales chicago white sox jersers process, after hearing the Le Batard cincinnati reds jersers interview, said, via text: "Commissioner said was not aware of [Jeter] plan to slash payroll. Absolutely not true. They request and receive the operating plan from all bidders.

"Project Wolverine [the name for Jeter's plan] called chicago white sox jersers on his group to reduce payroll to $85 million. This was vetted and approved by MLB prior to approval by MLB. Every [Jeter] investor and non investor has the Wolverine financial plan of slashing payroll to $85 million. Widely circulated."

First off, "Project Wolverine" is ludicrously self-important and sinister-sounding, as budget strategies go. That's the name of a secret NSA laboratory deep under the Caballo Mountains in New Mexico, not a financial schematic. Do better, Jeets. Anyhow, there's enough careful phrasing in Manfred's comments ("operating-level decisions," "'Player X' or 'Player Y'") to give him some plausible deniability. However, the idea that he didn't know about plans to engage in yet another demo job by Marlins owners strains credulity.

APA workshops benefit so many people and it's great to see that. I hope that these workshops are held to teach people about the essay writing service reviews, as well. That would really be the best thing for everyone.
