Rose Theatre Kingston’s playwriting course is run by playwright and dramaturg Stephen Brown, whose plays include Faster (Filter Theatre) and Future Me (Theatre 503). Stephen has been a core teacher at the Rose for four years and many of his students have gone on to work as professional playwrights.
Dates: 12 January – 19 April 2016 on Tuesday evenings 7pm-9.30pm.
About the course: Over twelve weeks you will be taken through every step of writing a play, from character development and structure, to its professional application. In a small group you will analyse classic and modern works, as well as taking part in creative writing exercises and receiving individual feedback on your work. At the end of term, they invite experienced theatre directors and a group of actors to workshop scenes from your plays, giving you a unique opportunity to see how new writing is approached by professionals in the rehearsal room.
Whether you write as part of your job, or you have a New Year’s resolution to put pen to paper for the first time, whether you end up with a fully polished play, or a score of ideas, this is a really enjoyable and focused springboard for your creativity.
