Following the ‘Playwrighting for Everyone’ course, which opened up the mystical writing courses of theatre for everyone, this second course is designed to help you focus your writing and write that play! Using a combination of more advanced looks at elements of playwrighting- character, structure, dialogue and of course redrafting, you will also get a series of structured exercises, and a chance to discuss and share your work with other writers. We will also include one-to-one time with the tutor to discuss your projects.
Dates: Thursdays for 6 weeks from 14th January 2020, 7pm-9pm
Cost: £63 non-members/ £48 members
Deadline: not applicable but places are filled on a first come first serve basis and bookings close 48 hours before the start of the first session.
