Playwrights’ Playground is our new monthly ‘get together’ (virtually for now) where writers can meet, talk writing and share work. The sessions will be guided but really it’s a chance to informally talk about writing- the good the bad and the ugly, ask questions and try out work. We’d love you to bring things you’re working on, questions or just want to have those chats from the theatre bar we’re currently missing having!
The first session takes place on Saturday 9th January at 11am-1pm via Zoom and will be led by Emily Garside.
Cost: £7 non-members/ £5 members (not a member yet? Sign up here!)
We hope to see you there!
