<b>About this course</b>

Are you interested in theatre and performance? Are you keen to explore creative writing, such as scriptwriting, poetry, prose and fiction? If so, this course is ideal. It combines two subjects which naturally overlap and prepares you for a career in writing or in theatre, or for careers that combine both, such as scriptwriting.

Energising seminars and workshops will explore how writing works in the theatre industry. You’ll develop texts with performers, rehearse readings and participate in full theatre productions. Practical knowledge is shared through guest masterclasses from playwrights such as Laura Wade, Roy Williams and award-winner Winsome Pinnock.
