WELCOME to our OPEN DAY 2010

Every year RBW holds an open day to showcase the work of the charity and to launch the annual poetry collection. The charity provides opportunities for all kinds of writing including stage drama.

The team from Rotten Park Road Theatre Company consisted of: Director Patrick McConnell; Actors Rob Jones and Lynne Payne with lecturer Phil Emery in the role of stage writing coach and Master of Revels.
