Theatre503 Writers’ Programme: Advanced Playwriting Course with Andrew Thompson

Written by Andrew Thompson
Book Now

This five week class is suitable for writers with some experience, who have already written several scripts or had productions. You should come with a script in progress that you want to work on. Andrew Thompson will take you through exercises re-examining structure, story and redrafting designed to develop your own work. You will be challenged to push your style and ideas and experiment with new theatrical forms. You’ll also receive feedback on your work from Andrew and the other writers. Andrew will tailor the course content around the needs of the participants.

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. If you would like to book a Share The Drama bursary for the Writer’s Programme, please call our box office on 02079787040.
