Big Script is my writers' group. We generally meet twice a month, to discuss whatever material people have brought to the meeting. This is often a script of some kind,  but can be any type of writing.  We try and supply each other with constructive criticism and encourage each other to finish things.

Though essentially a feeback group we also put on shows at variety of local venues (local to Birmingham where most of us are based), either by pooling our own resources or in collaboration with others. As these shows have become more ambitious we've gradually moved away from our script-in-hand origins towards a more fully realised kind of performance.  Below are images from several Big Script shows.    

Former Big Scripters include Craig Stephens, Charlotte Goodwin and Marie-Paule Graham. Current members and their biogs are on the Big Script website. To find out more about Big Script go to the links page or click on: www.bigscript.org/
