2013 – Write About What You Know

“Write About What You Know”, a lively comedy by Paul Gisby, was performed by TADS from Wednesday 20th – Saturday 23rd November 2013.


Write About What You Know tells the tale of a group of amateur writers who meet every month in their local scout hut to discuss their work, exchange tips and seek mutual encouragement.

But closer examination of the disparate group of writers reveals a whirlwind of love affairs, petty jealousy, rivalry and literary one-upmanship.

This is punctuated with readings of often excruciatingly funny amateur penmanship, with everybody encouraged to draw on their own very different experiences to write about what they know.
