Playwriting Course

Following the framework of National Theatre’s programme for emerging playwrights, through practical exercises, you will develop approaches to Story, People, Narrative, Scenes, Style and Stagecraft to create new plays and/or hone existing work.

This course culminates in an exciting Scratch Scenes event where playwrights from this course will be invited to workshop their scenes with professional actors and then to share them in front of an audience to gain new insight and feedback about their writing. Scratch Sharing will take place Friday 7 June at 7pm. It is free to attend but booking is essential.
