7DS: ROUGH DRAFT

ROUGH DRAFT takes audiences behind the scenes - and possibly onto the stage - of a live storytelling show. We’ll take volunteers from the audience who have a story they'd like to tell, and together with our audience & panel of celebrity coaches we'll shape that story into a work of art.

If you've always wanted to try storytelling, ROUGH DRAFT is the place to find supportive, positive, constructive feedback to give you the confidence to take it to the next level. 

If you're an old pro, ROUGH DRAFT is the place to hone that story you've been trying to get just right for a bigger stage.

Mostly, though, ROUGH DRAFT is a great place to come for an evening of great stories. 

And because it's a 7 Deadly Sins show, we're also planning on some surprises which should make it a wee bit wild and a whole lot of fun.
