Theatre503 Writers’ Programme Course: Footnotes, Graffiti, Swamps and other Forms with Joel Tan

What does it mean for a play to be a swamp? To be graffiti on the wall? To be scribblings in the margins? How might that change the way we think about time, space, rhythm, and character? In this workshop, we’ll look at these provocations and more, thinking of form in some fun and interesting ways, hopefully opening up possibilities for our writing projects.
