Now in its 16th year, Candlewasters is the EUTC’s dedicated new writing company, presenting a unique opportunity for local writers to see their work showcased on stage. Throughout the year, submissions are opened for short scripts, from which our team selects a number to be featured in one of our three showcases. These showcases are presented by our talented repertoire of actors and directors, auditioned at the start of the year. Candlewasters has been a longstanding tradition within the EUTC, with notable alumni including Ella Hickson, Lucy Kirkwood and Sam Holcroft.


EUTC Candlewasters, seeks to continue to find innovative ways of showcasing our wonderful, local writing talents, however, we understand that our 2020-2021 year may not be able to follow our traditional structure of 3 showcases performed on the Bedlam stage. More information about our upcoming plans will be released at a later date, following guidance from EUTC and EUSA.
