WoLab are thrilled to be partnering with Theatre N16 to deliver a FREE 12-week intensive course led by industry professionals, aimed specifically at actor-writers.
Over the 12 weeks, you will develop your existing playwriting and acting skills through a series of tailored workshops, which will also include mentoring sessions in producing and marketing, as well as regular visits from established playwrights/theatre makers within the industry. All participants will be working towards a industry showcase to an invited audience of agents, casting directors, programmers, and producers. Throughout the duration of the course, participants will write their own monologue to perform for the showcase, as well as co-write a duologue with another member of the group. They will receive personalised support and feedback during the process.
- An introductory welcome session will be held on 20th June (Time TBC).
- Course Dates: Every Wednesday 11am -3pm, from 27th June – 12th September.
- Showcase Dates: 16th and 17th September (two performances each day).
- All sessions will be held at Theatre N16, 5 Ashley Road, London, N17 9LJ.
