503Studio: Introduction to Playwriting

Book Now

Five weekly Monday sessions from 12 Oct – Mon 9 Nov, 7pm – 9.30pm. The sessions will take place over Zoom.

Rex Obano will lead this course to act as an introduction to the core aspects and approaches to playwriting.  Chiefly, we will explore ways of finding inspiration for plays as well as looking at dramatic action, dialogue, subtext and theme in order to help create and develop characters. The basics of playwriting and storytelling will be discovered through practical exercises and sharing in a friendly and supportive environment.
