Kick Start Your Play
In this course, you will be surrounded with like-minded people to help clarify your creative ideas and keep you determined throughout 2018. There will be four group sessions with The Court’s literary manager, one day long group session with actors to read extracts from your play and a couple of guest playwrights visiting. It’s a way to get stuck into that play idea you’ve had kicking around for a while now… but be warned, playwrighting ain’t for the fainthearted!
Each Tuesday session will include a 1 hour skills workshop plus 2 hours spent working with each other and The Court's Literary Manager on your specific project.
