    7pm (and matinees)Northern Stage, Newcastle

    A brand new re-twisted version of the classic story, written by Caroline Bird. An angry orphan escapes a grey town on the back of a hurricane. She lands in a mysterious country of tiny people and wicked witches, where the trees carry bazookas, the crows recite slam poetry, and a mouse can blow your head off. In just one day, this little girl revolutionizes an entire nation. She brings freedom, and colour. Her name is DOROTHY. Book tickets here.

    “A door opens, a door shuts. In between you have had a glimpse: a garden, a person, a rainstorm, a dragonfly, a heart, a city.” (Sylvia Plath) How do we ‘glimpse’ our own lives, as if for the first time? Experience the thrill of the unknown, in our own backyard? This week will explore new ways of seeing, new ways of writing, and hidden doors. Be prepared to write an almost criminal number of poems. Book places here.

    Residential courseMoniack Mhor, Invernesshire

    'Before you can surprise an audience, you must first surprise yourself on the page. This is not a crash-course in ‘the right style,’ but rather a process of unlearning in order to encounter afresh. How can we delight, frighten, confuse and confound ourselves on paper, and then bring that to the stage? How can we write and perform like ourselves?' Caroline will spend the weekend leading participants through an exploration of the mechanisms and language for performance.
