Once you are there walk up the hill (Great Horton Road), passing by the Alhambra Theatre on your left. Keep walking and you’ll see Bradford College and finally the University. Stay on this road until you reach Unique Fitness and Lifestyle (the new sports centre). You can then cut across the car parks behind the sports centre and walk down the grassy hill to Theatre in the Mill (which is next to the Phoenix building). Alternatively keep walking along Great Horton Road until it meets Shearbridge Road and turn right off Shearbridge Road opposite Bombay Stores and down the lane to get to the Theatre.

Over the course of two nights you will see the work of some of the most exciting new playwrights in Yorkshire, a panoramic view of contemporary Britain as reflected by a new generation of theatre makers. As the performances unfold, you will be entertained by stories that are sometimes personal, sometimes absurd and sometimes fantastic. Each play provides a slice of life, a personal vision of the world. Each evening we will invite you the audience to play the part of critic, advocate, agent and decide which play(s) you would like to see further developed and ultimately awarded a Freedom Studios commission to write a seventy-minute touring play. The writers have all attended Street Voices 3, an intensive writing course led by Madani Younis, Artistic Director of Freedom Studios

‘I have been privileged to witness the bravery, passion and commitment shown by the writers who are not afraid to say it the way they see it without fear and compromise.” Madani Younis, Artistic Director of Freedom Studios

Mark Catley Northern Bullits More Than Words (is all I ever needed you to show). Wednesday 24 – Friday 26 November, 7.30pm, £6.50/£5 concessions 01274 233200 A wide spectrum of writers have been approached with a simple brief - write a short piece, taking inspiration from the seminal 90’s love choon More Than Words and try to find the drama in brevity. Between 5 and 15 minutes in length, creating an hour and a half of minimalist rabbitingon and maximum entertainment. Wide of scope, narrow of language. A finger buffet of fresh air.

Put yourself at the heart of an incredible interactive performance with Jane Packman Company’s Treasured – A Secret Journey. In this unique sensory experience for one person at a time, you are invited to venture into your imagination. A mysterious voyage across oceans... A moonlit encounter in a dark forest... The glint of emerald armour before dawn... The performance begins in the sanctuary where you relax and drink tea, whilst your guide helps you choose your journey. Once your choice is made you enter the dressing chamber, where you will be adorned with an amazing piece of jewellery, which unlocks a treasured secret… This gentle, interactive performance offers a fleeting experience of a different world, and features three specially commissioned pieces of sculptural jewellery. Each performance lasts around 30 minutes:
