Theatre503 Writers’ Programme Course: Finding The Story In Your Plot with Dawn King

Knowing what the story of your play really is can make the difference between it being ‘just’ good and it being great. Learn from Dawn King how to dive fearlessly into your story and match it with plot and character. Suitable for writers with works in progress.

This session is part of our In-Person Writers’ Programme Weekend across Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th June at what will be the 503Studio at Nine Elms!

The 503Studio will be opening fully in late Spring 2025. Currently, the space is still a work-in-progress and the building is still a ‘shell’, it is carpeted with full power and is wheelchair accessible. You can find out more the 503Studio at Nine Elms here.
