Introduction to Playwriting Course

Do you want to have a better understanding of how great plays work?

This course will explore some of the key aspects of writing a play for the stage, including theatricality, character progression, dialogue and plot. Led by Chinonyerem Odimba, Live Theatre’s Writer-in- Residence, it will include a mix of practical workshops and master-classes.

This is an opportunity for emerging playwrights at an early stage in their career to engage with Live Theatre and hone their writing skills. Previous participants include Nina Berry (The Terminal Velocity of Snowflakes), Alison Carr (Iris) and Paddy Campbell (Wet House).

The next course runs over 10 sessions between Saturday 22 September and Saturday 24 November

Free, by application, booking required as limited spaces
