Based in Manchester but working across the United Kingdom and beyond, we provide script reading services and dramaturgy to playwrights and theatre makers. We also offer workshops, mentoring and production advice to writers, particularly those at the start of their career.

Brush Stroke Order is a place to test ideas, share and develop new work.

Your notes were incredibly clear and succinct; quite outstanding. You got behind the lines and right to the heart of the structure of the piece, you understood it's mechanics and were able to pinpoint exactly where the space for further exploration might be found. We found your synopsis helpful and were struck by your clarity of thought and the accessible manner in which you laid out your feedback. These notes demonstrate your dramaturgical skill and are testament to your excellent work with Brush Stroke Order.
