An unexpected silver lining of being stuck at home is suddenly having the time to work on our skills, or even to try something new entirely. We're proud to host a range of new-writing at the OSO, from lessons and showcases to full-blown performances. 

Our 'Community Creations' initiative invites everyone in the Barnes community to write something, send it to us, and we'll get it performed. It can be a monologue, a song, a poem - whatever you like! Everyone and everything is welcome, whether you've been working on a script for a while or are trying your hand at writing for the first time.

Send your work to us at, and we'll work with our network of local artists to bring it to life.

Submissions should be no longer than 4-5 minutes in length.
