9 August 2022, 6pm-7.30pm BST
Duration: 90 mins
If you are a playwright and you would like to know how to get your play successfully commissioned by a theatre, then join our intimate workshop with the Stephen Joseph Theatre Literary Coordinator Fleur Hebditch.
This 90 minute workshop will open up the process of submitting a play and having a play commissioned. Fleur will also speak about what she considers when reading a play. You will receive valuable advice, have the opportunity to engage with Fleur by asking any questions you have, analyse materials and examples and above all, learn how to make the words on the page become a reality.
Fleur has worked in the theatre since leaving drama school in the early nineties. She trained at GSA and has worked as an actor, writer, director and producer. She currently serves at the Stephen Joseph Theatre as Assistant producer and Literary coordinator. As well as working as a freelance dramaturg. At the theatre, she looks after the open submissions, as well as producing and directing the new writing play readings. She works with writers at various stages of their careers, through dramaturgy, providing support, introducing new opportunities, and commissioning.
Fleur will talk about what a regional theatre is looking for in a writing submission, how a literary department works in a theatre and what pathways could be open to writers, and how rejection might not always be as bad as it sounds! She is also happy to talk about any specific projects any writers have in the pipeline, and what possible pathways could be open to them.
