Introduction to Playwriting
The script is the backbone of any theatre production, from the point of conception through to the realisation of the final work on stage. Delivered as a two-day intensive workshop, a ten-week evening class, or as a longer five-month course, I have designed this course to be a stimulating and inspiring introduction to the craft of playwriting.
Delivered in weekly sessions (2hrs) over 8 weeks, or 10 weeks with the option of a staged reading of participants short plays at the end of the course. One-to-one feedback on participants work is provided at intervals throughout the course, plus the option of a theatre trip to aid critical review.
This course structure is based on five group sessions (2hrs), scheduled once a month over five months. In addition to the group sessions, one to one feedback on participants work is provided via weekly Skype calls between sessions. Participants work towards developing the final draft of a short play.
