Theatre503 Writers’ Programme Masterclass: From Fragments to Fiction, Sudha Bhuchar
The session will explore using everyday dialogue and conversations as a springboard to writing character self portraits and short scenes that act as inspiration to fuller ideas for work. Sudha’s practice has evolved through using verbatim testimonies as a portal to truthful, deep and stirring work that is both personal and political. Sudha’s current piece Evening Conversations is an example of this and is now on Audible too. You will do some practical work and also have a conversation/Q and A about how some of Sudha’s projects have evolved using this process.
Please note that this session will take place at THEATRE503, 503 Battersea Park Road, London SW11 3BW. For further information on how to access our venue, please click here.
Date: Wednesday 18 October 2023
Time: 7pm – 9.30pm
