Introduction to PlaywritingDundee Rep Theatre, Dundee
3 - 5pm
|With Simon MacCallum
Get to know your way around a playwright's toolkit with this informative and practical workshop on the nuts and bolts of writing a play, from structure and conflict to characterisation and dialogue. Get some answers to those pressing questions, "who needs stage directions anyway?" and, "how much exposition is too much exposition?"
Born to Write is part of Playwrights' Studio's public workshop programme offering free workshops to give participants a taste of playwriting in a safe, supportive and fun environment.
Q: I've never written stories before but I'd like to,
can I take part?
A: Of course, the sessions will give you techniques to help you start thinking about your own stories and how to tell them dramatically on stage.
Q: I don't have any stories but I'd like to come along and find out more
A: No problem, we all tell stories all the time, this is just a different way of capturing them. Come and try a workshop and you'll realise you have plenty of stories!
