Writing for the Stage

Date: 13th March 2019, Time: 5:45 pm - 8:00 pm, Location: The Writers’ Block

Whether you are a new writer or already writing, this course looks at the creativity and craft of writing for the stage.  Within the playful, imaginative space of The Writers’ Block, we explore theme, story, characters, dialogue, setting and staging through workshops, group discussions and feedback, culminating in a creative sharing event at The Minack Theatre.

Sessions will be run by writer and lecturer Jane Pugh, with support from director and performer John Brolly
