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 , 1-2-1 dramaturgy sessions and open talks 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.
