WRITE THEATRE - Online Playwriting Course

Saturday, October 24, 2020 to Saturday, November 7, 2020

Workshop

Venue: Online

THE NEXT WRITE THEATRE ONLINE COURSE WILL TAKE PLACE OVER THE MORNINGS OF SATURDAYS OCTOBER 24th & 31st and NOVEMBER 7th

Theatre is essentially a live and playful experience, which is why in all our courses we not only play with the words on the page but always ensure that each course is interactive. We encourage participants to try out dialogue, exploring the relationship between how people speak and what that reveals about character; investigate how narrative is driven by character; consider how meaning is created through visual and spoken imagery; and how theatrical structure works in the dynamics between characters and in the overall narrative.

Many online ‘creative writing’ courses offer material that can be accessed at any time, and comprise in essence a series of recorded lectures. The WRITE THEATRE online course offers much more than that. The tutors, Rib Davis and Brian Woolland, engage with participants directly throughout. The participants take part in writing exercises during every Zoom session and undertake writing tasks between one week and the next. There are numerous opportunities for participants to ask questions and to reflect on the work.

The WRITE THEATRE online course also offers those who have completed the course an invitation to have extracts from their plays given online rehearsed readings with experienced professional actors.

The course uses the Zoom platform (use of the platform is free at the participant end). The workshops will be a mixture of individual writing exercises, pair exercises discussion, reflection and advice.

We strictly limit the number of participants to 6 for each course, in order to guarantee individual attention.
