What is Dramaturgy Anyway?

Event details

25 July at 6:00 pm 6:50 pm


Are you a writer who has ever found themselves stuck in the creative process? Have you ever felt like your work could use an extra set of eyes to help elevate it to the next level? If so, you might want to consider working with a dramaturg. The job of a dramaturg is notoriously difficult to define, yet any writer who has collaborated with one understands how essential they are in the theatrical process. With their vast knowledge of theatrical history and structure, they can guide a writer through the development of their play, from the very first draft to opening night.

Join us in a conversation with Stewart Pringle, writer and senior dramaturg at the National Theatre, to learn more about how a dramaturg can help take your work to the next level. Discover how they can provide invaluable support and insight throughout the creative process to bring your play to life. New play, The Bounds, is part of the season at Royal Court June-July, Stewart Pringle
