Table Read

9 November 2016

While the Rehearsal Room was happening down in Wellington on Saturday, the third round of the Guild Table Reads for 2016 was taking place in Auckland at the NZ Writers Guild headquarters.

The feature length script that was read was written by DEGNZ member writer/director Paula W. Jones thanks to a cast of 6 actors who really brought the characters off the page. Check out some pics below!

The Table Reads are a joint initiative between DEGNZ, NZWG and Equity Foundation.

Table Reads will return for more rounds in 2017! If you have a feature-length script in development you’d like to have read, you can apply to go in the draw for future rounds by contacting NZWG:

Open to members of DEGNZ / NZWG. Names remain for subsequent draws.





Thanks to Jesse Warn for hosting a fantastic Directing Toolkit workshop over the weekend. The feedback for the 2-day intensive workshop has been overwhelmingly positive and participants received loads of practical information, tips and inspiration. P1020475 P1020483 P1020489 P1020497
