About INK

INK was born in 2015 at the Halesworth Cut Theatre in Suffolk. INK is a charity that develops, nurtures and produces the best new short scripts for stage, film and radio from writers with an East Anglian connection.

From “pen to performance” the focus is on helping writers, whatever their age or experience, to give them the opportunity to work with professional actors and directors through:

INK Festival – annual weekend festival of new short plays, musicals, radio and film. The festival also includes a growing programme of workshops and talks, as well as a children’s programme.

INKlings – provides drama, film, and creative writing courses for children and young people.

INK’d Up – offers professional development for aspiring writers and actors to hone their skills through readings, feedback of works in progress, talks and workshops from industry professionals.

INK Spills – helps writers to develop scripts that are premiered at the INK Festival, in order to transfer elsewhere. Previous works have been performed in London, Ipswich, Latitude Festival, Norwich and Cambridge.

INK on the Road – tours the best world premieres from the INK Festival.
