Theatre festival reveals new patron.

FORMER Brookside star Dean Sullivan has been named the latest patron of Liverpool's one-act play festival, Write Now.

The actor joins Actors Studio director Pauline Daniels, Radio Merseyside broadcaster Roger Phillips and Alastair Machray, editor of the Daily Post's sister paper, The Liverpool Echo.

Taking place from April 15-23, the second annual Write Now festival will showcase eight new plays, chosen through an open submissions process. Sullivan, who has held a range of TV and stage roles as well as playing Jimmy Corkhill in Brookside from 1986 to the soap's end in 2003, said he was pleased to support the event.

He said: "To have such a festival in Liverpool is extremely exciting.

"New writing is the life blood of any theatrical institution and anything that gives writers the chance to take their first step on the ladder is very important."

Taking place at the Actors Studio on Seel Street, Write Now is supported by the Daily Post.
