503Studio Masterclass: Taking the Minority Mainstream
How do we write stories from minority communities for ‘mainstream’ theatre audiences with integrity? How do we resist the pressures to over-explain specific cultural backgrounds (the anthropological play) while guiding audiences through unfamiliar worlds? How do we go beyond the Aristotelian to find the deep structures and story forms which serve our plays? Join Amy Ng in this masterclass exploring how to make our various minority stories accessible to a mainstream audience.
