Vignettes at Hope Mill Theatre

Vignettes at Hope Mill Theatre

Six female writers for stage and screen have been commissioned by HER Productions to write six original short plays which will premiere at Hope Mill Theatre in February 2020.

Through VIGNETTES, both established and emerging writers will meet regularly to develop their pieces in a shared space, offering a collaborative environment, support, mentorship,

and artistic development.

The VIGNETTES writers are Coronation Street‘s BAFTA-winning Jan McVerry, Alexandra Keelan (BBC Radio 4, Oldham Coliseum Theatre, HOME), Keisha Thompson (awardwinning Man on the Moon, PlayBox playwright with Box of Tricks), Ellen Taylor (Dream

Team, Casualty, Waterloo Road), Katherine McDermott (Barbican, HOME, Royal Exchange) and Laura Harper (Oldham Coliseum Theatre, Hope Mill Theatre, Royal

Exchange).

The Stage reported in September 2018 that female playwrights made up 28% of content by living writers at the National Theatre in 2017/18, despite the organisation’s ongoing target of

50% by 2021.

Founded by actor and producer Hannah Ellis Ryan, best known as Coronation Street villain Hannah Gilmore, HER Productions seeks to address the underrepresentation of female writers in theatre at a regional and national level.
