Summer Workshops 1995 'Hothouse'

Scope and Content

The 1995 workshops centred on the Hothouse Writers' Festival at Contact Theatre, Manchester. This was a collaborative venture designed to present a month of new writing at the theatre. The plays that were workshopped in 1995 were as follows:The Kindness of Mrs Stein, by Michael Fox; Chalking Crosses, by Spencer Hazel; The Maginot Line, by Ted Moore; Menagerie, by James Winstanley and Carrying On, by Janet Goddard. The Writers' Festival included platform discussions and seminars as well. The 1995 workshops were the only ones to be organised by Jonquil Panting, Director of North West Playwrights from the end of 1994 to late 1995.
