Written by Jonathan Winfield, Reasons for Living is a collection of original sketches to engage the audience in the author's experiences of dealing with some of the problems on life's journey. Looking at the journey from cradle to middle age, there will be a chance for the audience to look at life and try to discover a better way forward, as Jon offers his finite wisdom and shares his very own Reasons for Living.

Rehearsed Readings

A rehearsed reading is a semi-staged performance, often performed with scripts, that has been intensively rehearsed during the week before the performance takes place. They are the perfect opportunity to rehearse a play in a relaxed, informal atmosphere in advance of a final performance.
