Down Stage Write: Structure workshop with Barney Norris

Genesis Building, Union Street, Plymouth (AND ONLINE)

This workshop will explore scene and play structures, and discovering rhythms to suit your story as you turn it into a play. Through practical exercises and study of existing texts, we’ll try to look at the shapes of stories, and the infinite possibilities of how to shape a play.

Barney Norris is a playwright and novelist, whose work has been awarded the International Theatre Institute’s Award for Excellence, a South Bank Sky Arts Times Breakthrough Award, a Critics Circle Award, an Offwestend Award, a Betty Trask Award and the Northern Ireland One Book Award, and translated into nine languages. His novels include the bestselling Five Rivers Met On A Wooded Plain and most recently the critically acclaimed Undercurrent; his plays include Visitors, Eventide, Nightfall and The Wellspring. He reviews regularly for the Guardian, teaches creative writing at the University of Oxford, and is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature.

This workshop takes place IN PERSON at CareNest @ The Genesis Building on Union Street Plymouth.
