Contact Theatre's 'Flip the Script'

I'm off up to Manchester for a performance of my play Feeding the Roses in the Contact Theatre's 'Flip the Script' series - a BBC supported program for new writing.
It runs as a 'playwriting slam' - several pages of the play performed in rehearsed playreading mode by professional actors, then performed alongside others.
As an actor I used to do a lot of these rehearsed readings myself - at the Tron Theatre in Glasgow and Dundee Playhouse. It was a fine way of presenting work, getting audience feedback for an actor - though audiences did tend to say 'that would be great for radio', so something of the full theatrical experience goes wanting.
