In this course you will begin a new play and embark on a process towards a first draft of a script. Starting with discovering your idea and into genre, themes, character development, the form and shape of the work. You will benefit from sharing work with others in the group through guided feedback sessions, deepening a creative connection with the group- group support is after all, a gift when it comes to a regular playwriting process. These are not lectures in the ‘art of playwriting’, rather a series of fast-paced guided workshops where, through a series of exercises, you will unlock your creative potential. The course will culminate in a night of play reading where a short extract of your play will be read by professional actors. 

This course is for those who have always wanted to try playwriting in a supportive and educational environment. Whether you have worked in theatre for years as an actor or never been involved in a production but always wanted to create a text for the theatre, this course will support your journey. 

Please note that due to the rapid pace of the course, you will need to dedicate time outside of the classes to complete your scripts.
