Writing original plays for stage

GENRE: Playwriting
The Hurst

This week is a creative investigation of the mechanics of playwriting. It explores elements of form: such as character, action, setting, narrative and structure. It delves into dramatic action and dramatic irony. It pulls this all together: to develop new stories and find dramatic form. The week focuses on writing original stories for theatre (not adaptations from other sources). It is useful both for playwrights at the beginning of their career, and for writers who have written one or two plays and wish to develop their craft. The week aims to be creative, inventive, challenging, irreverent and fun.
