“The way to write a good play is to convince yourself it is easy to do -then go ahead and do it with ease.”
Heeding Tennessee Williams’ advice, this workshop will offer up practical tools to make realising your stories for the stage feel a little easier.
Whether you’re starting out, need to be reminded of the basics to unlock an elusive idea or just want to explore someone else’s process, come along ready to analyse great writing and put pen to paper to unlock potential greatness. Exploring character, subtext and structure, participants will leave better equipped to tackle their dramatic writing with confidence and ease so they can realise their ambitious ideas for the stage.
