503Studio: Introduction to Playwriting
Oladipo Agboluaje will lead this course to act as an introduction to the core aspects and approaches to playwriting. Over 5 sessions, Oladipo will guide writers through the key aspects of playwriting in an interactive and practical way. Alongside exploring theories, during each session, writers will take part in writing exercises and have the opportunity to share work in a supportive space.
Please note we cannot commit to an ongoing dramaturgical relationship with any pieces that may develop on this course, or commit to a production. However we will offer an open and honest discussion with all participants about possible next steps for their work, recommendations of other development opportunities that might be of benefit, and guidance to where their work may best be suited in terms of future engagement.
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.
