503Studio Masterclass: What I Wish I Had Known About Playwriting At The Start, David Eldridge

I’ve been a professional playwright for 27 years now and apart from wondering where all the time has gone, I’ve picked up a thing or two I wish I could tell my younger self. How do you find a way of writing that allows you to make your best work? What is the best contribution a writer can make when their play is in production? How do you navigate the sometimes-tricky process of rewriting and collaborating with a creative team and management? How do you make money and survive? How do you keep mentally well? How do you manage not to alienate all your friends and loved ones while exploring the worlds you share?
