Playing Up is a theatre group who put on nights of new writing in Newcastle Upon Tyne several times a year, usually at Northern Stage and usually sold out.
We look for scripts that showcase the best up and coming writing talent with interesting directors and exciting new actors.
Our nights are made up of half a dozen or so short plays which can be funny, sad, dramatic or even horrific. We’ve covered such diverse topics as game show hosts, school trips, abuse, job interviews, policing and vampires and many more.
