A new kind of playwriting workshop where you’ll have the chance to work with experienced actors and other writers to create and develop characters, plots and settings and write original drama. Whether you have a play in mind or you’re working from scratch, this workshop will help bring your ideas to life.

In the first six-hour workshop we’ll help you to develop new or existing play ideas through a series of creative activities. Actors will then join the workshop to help explore the characters you’ve created. You’ll have the chance to continue working with actors up until the second workshop three weeks later, when you can present your ideas and receive constructive criticism and further help and advice as needed.
