Lynn Whitehead: Three dimensions (for beginners)
Take the first steps to creating dramatic characters and putting them into different settings.

Lynn is the Community Producer for The New Wolsey Theatre and Director of the Pulse Fringe Festival.
12 places.

Sunday February 25th
Steve Waters: Dramatising Space
This session will look at the ways in which setting, scene and site might be the hidden character in your work; we will think about images, environments and atmospheres, write scenes, create moments and read play extracts. Geography has never been this much fun...
Steve’s plays include English Journeys, After the Gods (Hampstead Theatre) and Clare's Walk (Menagerie Theatre Company). His new play Fast Labour will be staged at the Hampstead Theatre later this year. He convenes the MPhil in playwriting at the University of Birmingham.
18 places.

Sunday March 18th
Kate Beales: Reading Between the Lines
In this workshop, we will work practically to explore ways in which theatre writers can create a supporting physical language to tell stories beyond the spoken word. Using specific textual examples we will examine the journey from page to stage, and play with the theatrical relationship between “showing” and “telling”. Kate has directed plays and projects for numerous theatres across the UK and overseas, including The English Shakespeare Company and The Orange Tree Theatre Richmond, and now works extensively for the National Theatre Education Department.
18 places

Sunday April 22nd
New writing seminar and Launch of ‘Summer Shorts’ Theatre Writing Competition
The seminar will include a debate about the merits and demerits of writing short form drama. The panel includes Paul Bourne, Artistic Director of Menagerie Theatre Company.
93 places.
