In July 2013, Manchester's 24:7 Theatre Festival, dedicated to producing brand new one-hour plays in venues around the city, will celebrate the tenth of its annual events.
Actor David Slack, who co-founded the festival in 2004 and is still its producer, reflects on ten years of putting new writing on stage and talks about new developments for this year's event.
Following this, five of the writers from this year's festival talk about their plays at the media launch in June 2013 at Manchester's Comedy Store: Alice Brockway (Blunted), Thomas Bloor (Night on the Field of Waterloo), Richard O'Neill (Temper), Micheál Jacob (Daylight Robbery) and Catherine Manford (Billy the Monster and Me).
