Should your structure be 5-Acts, 3-Acts or just the one? Is ‘structure’ restrictive to playwrights? Should writers stick rigidly to traditional structure or battle against it? And how do you go about developing the structure of your play from your initial idea?
This two-hour intensive workshop will help you get to grips with how structure works. Through practical creative exercises and group discussion you will unravel the basis of structure and discover how it can help you as a playwright. You’ll leave the workshop with the tools you need to create a solid structure for your play.
Who is this for? This workshop is suitable for both beginners and emerging writers.
Requirements: No experience is necessary but you will need to bring in a short preparatory exercise which will be specified once you have booked your place.
*Places are limited and are reserved on a strictly first come first serve basis, so early booking is advised.
Date and time: Thursday 14 April 2016 from 7pm-9pm
Location: Theatre Delicatessen – 119 Farringdon Road, EC1R 3DA (nearest tube: Farringdon)
