503Studio Masterclass: Finding Form For Your Content, Mia Chung

The touchstone for plays—as well as for buildings—can be “form follows function.” We will explore how and why an expansive approach to form and structure can support how your unique voice conveys your specific content.

Thanks to our Share The Drama scheme, we want to make sure those of you who are struggling in the current climate can still take part in our Writers Programme. While we prioritise anyone who is long term unemployed and/or claiming benefits, we’re also offering subsidies if you’re in financial difficulty as a result of the Covid-19 crisis.
