Theatre503 Writers’ Programme Course: The Art of Developing Ideas, Guleraana Mir

Do you have a thought, or an idea? Are you struggling to flesh out, or talk about your story? Bring an idea for a play that you’re either struggling with, or are in the early stages of consideration. Using creative exercises and peer feedback we’ll explore the nuts and bolts of what it takes to develop exciting worlds, strong character journeys and cohesive storytelling so you’re all set to write your next play. Suitable for anyone that’s written at least one play from beginning to end.
