What is INK?

INK champions the best new scripts and films from writers with an East Anglian connection. INK was born in 2015 at the Halesworth Cut Theatre in Suffolk, showcasing new writing for short plays and films. 

Now in 2017, INK has become a creative hub and platform that nurtures new writing through INK Spills, INK’d Up, INK Lings and the annual INK Festival. From pen to performance, our focus is on helping writers whose work we really believe in, whatever their age, whatever their experience, and giving them the opportunities to work with professional actors and directors. East Anglia is at the heart of everything we do at INK, and we look to quench the public’s thirst for new work, bold voices and big ideas in quality performances.

Through INK’d up we offer our writers the opportunity to hone their skills through readings and feedback of works in progress, inspiring talks and workshops from industry professionals.

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

INK Lings are our brilliantly wacky, superbly silly and fantastically funny children’s activities.

INK Festival was the start, join us for the journey.
