For intermediate writers
Monologues are hard to get right. Rather just 'one person talking' they need to be carefully-crafted stories that have a point and justify themselves as drama rather than prose. In this workshop, acclaimed playwright and performer Alan Bissett will give tips and techniques on how to choose the right material, voice, character and structure for your monologue.
Alan is an award-winning playwright, novelist and performer who grew up in Falkirk and now lives in Renfrewshire. His novels include Boyracers, Death of a Ladies’ Man and Pack Men and his plays, many of which have been made in collaboration with director Sacha Kyle, include The Ching Room, Turbo Folk, The Pure, The Dead and The Brilliant, Ban This Filth, The Red Hourglass and his ‘one-woman show’ The Moira Monologues.
