503Studio: Summer Takeover 2019

The 503 Literary Team is taking over Theatre503 for two weeks this summer (August 5 – 16), introducing the 503Studio. We are running a series of week long courses, masterclasses and 1-2-1 dramaturgy sessions from the team, our 503 Alumni and friends. There’s something for everyone – from an introduction to playwriting, prompts to get you writing to how to end your play. Thanks to Dynamis’ support of our Share the Drama Scheme – we also have bursary places for every session available for long term unemployed/those on benefits.

We will also be announcing a series of evening open forum discussions (free to those who book any 503Studio event) covering a range of topics including how to produce your work and future life – more info on our website in the next week or so. In the meantime, below is an outline of the two weeks at 503…
