short attention span theatre

Short Attention Span Theatre was set up in 2015 by Tom Brogan and Karen Barclay with the aim of enabling early career writers to see their works staged. Writers will write to a deadline, see their work rehearsed, re-write, and see their finished piece performed in front of a paying audience. The writer is encouraged to attend rehearsals and work collaboratively with the director and cast.


We are also on Facebook at SASTGlasgow Twitter at SASTSCOTLAND and Instagram at SASTGlasgow.


Since January 2018 we've been sending out a monthly newsletter which regularly includes a range of things we think you might find interesting from the worlds of theatre and writing. You can sign up with this form.

We're especially keen to engage with early career theatre directors. If you're looking to gain experience working with new writing and actors please do get in touch. We will have at least one more online show this summer, before, all being well, a series of live shows in the Autumn.
