In Motion Theatre are a new writing theatre company who write and tour their own work and support and nurture the writing of others. They will be touring their new play ‘Other Side of The River’ by Lisa Nicoll in association with Paisley Arts Centre and Future Paisley in 2021 and the hope is that some of the writings created in these sessions will be used as part of a new writing night at theatres in Scotland prior to the tour of show.

Lisa cut her teeth through SCDA festivals with Carnoustie Theatre Club for nearly 15 years.  Many of you will have known her Aunty, Betty Gibson, who always encouraged her.  Over the last few years Lisa has continued to write plays for Carnoustie Theatre Club for the SCDA festivals alongside her professional work – including Daisies and Broken Hours. This opportunity is open to everyone but could be particularly useful for those of you who write things for festivals and hopefully provide you with some inspiration through hearing your work read by actors which is so key in the development of any piece.

In Motion Theatre is a company funded on a project by project basis. It is creating this opportunity in response to the current COVID 19 situation. We would welcome donations to In Motion Theatre from those taking up this opportunity if people can and choose to, but there is absolutely no obligation, as everyone’s financial situation is different at this time.
