  • Monthly Wednesdays

Event Information

Playwriting: The Essentials takes place from 7pm-9.30pm on the third Wednesday of the month from 17 Oct 2018-17 July 2019 (10 sessions).


Think you might have a play in you? Over the space of a year, get to grips with the skills needed to write plot, character, dialogue, form and structure with playwright and director, Matt Grinter (pictured).

Playwriting: The Essentials aims to demystify the process of making scripted theatre, examining the ingredients required to make a play effectively work for an audience. We’ll spend time reading and discussing plays, both old and new, whilst undertaking a number of practical exercises to build your skill and confidence as a playwright.

Throughout the year the group will create and share work with one another in a safe, supported and structured environment and the course also includes talks from industry professionals, a free theatre trip to be agreed amongst the group and the chance to hear your work read by actors.

Open to all writers of any experience (especially beginners) with a willingness to explore, create and imagine.
