This course continues to explore the fundamental techniques of writing for the stage, including dialogue, character, structure, story and performance.

You’ll analyse more challenging texts for inspiration, and will have the opportunity experiment with a wide range of theatrical forms and styles in class. There is a strong workshopping component and there will be plenty of practical writing exercises to get you producing scenes, plots and characters of your own.
