Writer Support

Supporting South Asian Women to write for the theatre lies at the core of all that Kali does. All of our projects seek to support, encourage and promote new theatre writing by Asian women. Our writer support activity includes 1-1 dramaturgy, regular writer workshops in London, play development workshops with actors and a director, and public readings.

The 2016/17 Writer Development Programme has recently got underway and will culminate in a season of public readings in June 2017.

We’re immensely proud of our annual Talkback event. Since Talkback started in 2008, we’ve been receiving more and more scripts covering an exciting diversity of subjects, styles and characters which is exactly what Kali is all about. At the culmination of our unique Writer Development Programme, we will present these wonderful new plays in public for the first time.’ Janet Steel, Kali Artistic Director
