Adapting existing tales for stage, screen and radio

GENRE: Film & TV, Playwriting & Radio Drama
Totleigh Barton

We will explore the exciting possibilities for dramatic adaptation, drawing on our practical experience writing for stage, screen and radio.  The week will apply the core principles all dramatic writing has in common as we take participants through adapting novels, films, radio plays, stage plays and historical material for screen, stage and radio. At the samew time, we will also highlight what makes writing in each of those dramatic genres exciting and unique.
We will lead a busy but fun week inspiring and provoking in equal measure with writing exercises, scene study and well-turned anecdote from the rehearsal room, film set and studio.
