Chalk Musical Theatre Dramaturgy: Writers of Hadestown, Six and Fun Home join workshop series

Introducing online talks and workshops for musical theatre writers, led by a host of international
writers and creatives.
Leading the workshops are Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss (SIX), Lisa Kron (Fun Home), Ken
Cerniglia and Anaïs Mitchell (Hadestown), Francesca Forristal and Jordan Clarke (Public
Domain), Beth Hinton-Lever (Reasons To Be Cheerful), and Adam Pottle (The Black Drum).
The workshops will cover topics such as fostering meaningful collaboration, queerness in
musical theatre, working with a dramaturg, and incorporating creative access into the writing
process. Ellie and Deborah, co-founders of Chalk, say “We wanted to programme a series of
events that invite challenging conversations for writers to explore topics they may not have
experience with.”
Chalk are launching these events alongside their Membership programme. Members will be
able to access all of the events for free, as well as added benefits including discounted script
reads, networking opportunities, drop-in dramaturgy sessions and bespoke resources.
Ellie Coote and Deborah Vogt launched Chalk Musical Theatre Dramaturgy during the
pandemic to offer accessible, Pay-What-You-Can script reads for writers of new musical theatre
in the UK and around the world.
