WRTIE HERE, WRITE NOW
A new writing night with a difference!
For our first event as an Oldham Coliseum Associate Company, Rogue Bones are inviting a group of established Northern writers to take up a challenge: they will have 8 days to write a short piece of work in response to a provocation set by the company. We obviously can’t tell you what the first challenge is yet (the writers might see it!) but it will involve you, the audience, as we play with the kind of experiences that theatre can provide.

OLDHAM COLISEUM ASSOCIATE COMPANY
We are thrilled to announce that we are now an Associate Company at Oldham Coliseum!
Working with the Coliseum, Fine Comb and Rogue Bones will contribute to the creative life of the theatre and benefit from support in developing, presenting and promoting their work, including rehearsal space and access to the skills and experience of the theatre’s in-house team. Alongside this the two organisations will help to deliver the Coliseum’s broad range of work with young people and in the community, including workshops at Oldham’s Youth Zone, MAHDLO, and sessions with the theatre’s scriptwriting group, Scribbles.

We had a very successful two days at The Dukes, Lancaster, doing research and development on our next show: Selfies Kill More People Than Sharks.
We were working with some amazingly talented and lovely performers (shout out to Sophie Giddens, Amy Drake and Rikki Hanson Orr, who weren't around for the school photo!)
We were taking part in the Kickstart Open Space initiative, started by The Dukes Artistic Director, Sarah Punshon, as a way of engaging with new theatre makers across the North West by opening up space at The Dukes for artists to experiment and develop new work.
It was a great experience for us; not only did we come away with many (so very many) ideas about what direction we will take the show, but it also gave the opportunity to form new relationships, not only the with the performers we worked with, but also with Sarah Punshon, Danny Matthews and Anna Nguyen at the Dukes. Thanks!
