Is structuring a play really as daunting as it’s made out to be? Is the five act structure the enemy of the free-thinking playwright? Should we map out the structure of a play before writing it?
All too often, we see structure as a challenge which stands in our way but what if we could use knowledge of the 5 Act Structure to guide us in developing stories and help us to focus our writing? In this two hour workshop, Kimberley Andrews will provide an in depth exploration of the building blocks of structure and help you to discover the advantages of using this when writing a play.
Date: 27 March 2021 at 10am-12pm
