Theatre503 Writers’ Programme Masterclass: Writing Your Own Monologue, Lily Bevan

A fun two evening workshop designed to help you create a unique monologue for performance. Are you an actor or writer (or anyone else who fancies it) who’d like to write your very own brand new dramatic or comedic monologue (that could suit you to perform)? Experience not necessary. Weird and wonderful welcome. Split over two evenings the same small group will have two three-hour sessions, and some homework, culminating in a group sharing of new monologues. We will create characters that are engaging and distinct and find an enjoyable solid structure.
