Theatre503 Writers’ Programme Masterclass: Politics are Personal: Finding a Route In, Roxy Cook
This masterclass explores how to distill a bigger picture political situation or question down into a set of dramatic circumstances that can draw an audience in. Via writing exercises, examples, and sharing her own experiences writing her 503 Award winning A WOMAN WALKS INTO A BANK, Roxy will look at balancing entertainment and education, drama and debate. We all have things we want to say, but how can we turn those ideas into living, breathing characters? Or use theatricality and form to start a conversation a news article can’t?
Date: Monday 18th March
Time: 7pm – 9:30pm
Running time of workshop: 2.5 hours – delivered online. Maximum class sizes are 16.
