Weekend larks (March 30 - April 1)

Write you are
Write Now is the brainchild of Ian Moore, a Sunderland-born director, writer and actor, who relocated to Liverpool in 1994.

Surprised that the city who gave the world so many recognised playwrights did not have a new writing festival, he set about changing that.

PaulinePauline DanielsWrite Now, the annual Liverpool One Act Play Festival, is a nine day beano which opens the Friday pre-Good Friday and closes Easter Sunday, presenting performances of new plays in a Liverpool city-centre venue dedicated to new writing. There's also one of those In Conversation events, with Actors Studio founder Pauline Daniels, on Saturday.

It seeks to support, encourage and celebrate new and original work by writers, performers, directors and technical specialists. So if you’re looking to network or flaunt your assumed talent around, head over.

*Write Now, The Actor's Studio, Seel Street, Opens Friday 30th March from 6.30pm, tickets £8 Have a look here to see what's on.

 

Pink view
Over the past 40 years, the political and societal attitudes towards lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans people has changed beyond recognition. Today almost all discriminatory laws and policies have been repealed and equal protection extended into all areas of life. This has been achieved by the dedicated campaigning of LGBT individuals and straight allies who have tirelessly worked to achieve equality for all.

PinkbrickPinkbrickPink Brick charts the changes in attitudes, policies and law towards the LGBT community since the decriminalisation of homosexuality in 1967 to the present day.

Drawing on official records from the University and the Liverpool Guild of Student as well as materials and photographs and personal accounts from LGBT staff and students, Pink Brick recounts the development of the first Homophile Society, of the Gay Rights movement within the National Union of Students and the University's approach to LGBT rights.

Angel Delight
Jenny knows that there’s something seriously wrong with Pete. It’s that woman’s intuition.

This man is just not behaving right. Helped and hindered by two incompetent Guardian Angels, who will do anything to keep their jobs, Jenny turns detective. As you do.

AngelsAngelsWith her marriage in crisis and a mistress at the door will she be able to save the day? Will she want to? What would you do?

The Vauxy Theatre, who are behind this Scouse piece of art, was formed in 1983 by a group of writers and actors at the Vauxhall Neighbourhood Council Centre in the Scotland Road area of Liverpool.

Stemming from ‘Scottie Road Writers ‘83′, The Vauxy was motivated by the desire of working class people to have complete production control over their creative output, ranging from poetry readings to full theatrical presentations. Pubs, social clubs, prisons and community centres were amongst the venues that welcomed The Vauxy Theatre in its formative years. Now they take over the Unity Theatre with an acclaimed piece.

Angels Delight, Unity Theatre, Hope Place, 30th - 31st March 2012, from 8pm, tickets £12.
