CFT’s Script Lab will take participants through a workshopping process in which your short play is honed, refined and finally performed in a script-in-hand reading by two professional actors.
Course Tutor Lucy Flannery will lead you through a series of exercises to sharpen your playwriting skills. Participants will look at structure, dialogue, sub-text, tension and different ways to connect with an audience.
