WRITING THEATRE

- is a year-long course;
- assumes no previous theatre writing experience;
- is taught at tertiary level.


YOU HAVE STORIES TO TELL THAT CAN CHANGE THE WORLD!

You will learn the art and craft of writing for live performance, using the spoken word, action, light, sound, and design, and you'll create stories that will engage and move an audience.

The programme consists of four 8-week terms during which you will:

- attend a two-hour class each week on a Thursday night;
- write three theatre scripts of increasing length and complexity;
- undertake a weekend workshop of each script;
- read and comment on a series of published play scripts as exemplars;
- interact online with your colleagues and tutor between classes and terms
