New Writing 2018! And the winner is.....

"Beneath the Blue Rinse" by Tom Glover

Many thanks to all of you who submitted your scripts to us. It's been really difficult making the decision as we had a number of high calibre plays to consider. 

After much discussion the panel selected 'Beneath the Blue Rinse' by Tom Glover,  an outrageous comedy which exposes how society views and treats the elderly, exploding stereotypes and questioning the practises of our so-called ‘care system’.

This is a co-production with KEPOW! Theatre, and the play will be directed by their Artistic Director Kevin Tomlinson.  (

Welcome to Living the Drama!             

Living the Drama is a 'not for profit' theatre company, based in Oxford, and set up in April 2015.  Through the medium of theatre, our main purpose is to advance tolerance  and inclusivity within our rapidly changing society.  Our aims are: 

1.  To encourage creative new writing for people of all ages, ability and experience, including those with many years experience of life and ‘living the drama’.  Our plays have a particular focus on ethical dilemmas, conflicts and pressures which face us in today's multi-cultural and socially diverse Britain.

2. To take the best plays forward to full professional production, creating a Community Project for all to join in and support.  

3. To look for ways in which we can widen participation in theatre, by connecting to audiences in 'hard to reach' venues.

Our income is derived from donations, grants, box office takings, and professional fees for service such as training courses or workshops.   We invest all income into on-going and future projects, to benefit new playwrights and community groups. In order to ensure we remain viable, we apply strict commercial discipline to the business.
