503Studio Masterclass: Playing With Time

How does time work within plays? Who really knows for sure. But the fun thing is that you can do anything you want with it to make it somehow feel right for the play you’re writing. The workshop will look at how time can be used to drive the narrative, put pressure on characters, and generally do weird things with the form of the play.

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.
