10 DEC 2012. It’s been a busy old time for us at the Rep recently, what with our radio drama airing on Spark Sunderland, and lots more writing for further shows to come in the new year. The radio stuff is really starting to come together now. We’re currently putting together our Mixcloud page, where you’ll be able to hear all our audio output – keep your eyes on this site (and the facebook page) for details.
But we’ve also been busy putting together our plans for theatrical productions over the coming months. As well as our 2013 season, a further project we’re embarking upon is an occasional series of script-in-hand rehearsed readings. We’ll be inviting contributions from writers (and casting submissions from actors) very soon; again, keep an eye on the site.
We’re pleased to announce that the new venue for these and many other productions in the future, will be The Stumble Inn, on Chester Road in Sunderland.
Formally the Royalty pub, it has recently been taken over by new management and refurbished to a fantastic standard. You can check out their facebook page here. We will be taking up residency in their function room upstairs, which is equipped with a stage at one end of the room, as well as its own fully stocked bar!
We’re very much looking forward to establishing our partnership with The Stumble Inn, and we look forward to welcoming you along to our many productions in 2013.
