503Studio Masterclass: Creating Three Dimensional Characters

How well do you know your characters? What makes them authentic? How do we make an audience care about them. This workshop will explore how we can create and really dig into the characters that populate our plays.

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 Spring 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.
