Welcome to the Hive
In 2019 The Greater Manchester Fringe received Arts Council Funding to produce a curated arm of the Fringe called The Hive.
We invited people to
submit their scripts and CV's so we could pick 3 people to work with. We were looking for a new comedian, a spoken word performer and someone with a great idea for a 1 act duologue.
We were inundated with applications and held a scratch night at Salford Arts Theatre so we could whittle down the applications to our final three.
In the end we provided mentoring for and produced the following shows.
Blue Lines by Stefanie
Moore – mentored by Tim Firth
Stained by Simon Widdop – mentored by Ben Moor
Sian Davies: About Time – mentored by Dave Williams
The 3 shows were performed at The Kings Arms in Salford, The Way in Atherton & Bury Met.
