Playwriting course in Brighton

** UPDATE ** This course has been postponed until Autumn 2012 **

NWS logo“Playwrighting” from New Writing South

led by Lance Woodman

This new ten session course offers a supportive atmosphere in which to explore elements of craft, including characterisation, plot, dialogue, and voice. Aimed at both those new to playwrighting and those with some experience wanting a refresher course the emphasis is on discovery, technique, and experimentation. Building on regular class exercises and individual work, and guided by constructive feedback and discussion, you will work on producing a short drama script. Some work created by the group will be presented by professional actors in a rehearsed reading at the end of the course which all participants can attend.

Lance Woodman is a playwright. He has an MA in Playwriting Studies from the University of Birmingham. He has taught Drama and Writing for Performance at Birkbeck College, University of London, Brunel University and Birmingham City University. His plays have been produced by Worcester Swan Theatre, BBC Radio 4, artworcs and New Theatre Works amongst others. He has been invited to workshops at the National Theatre Studio, was commissioned by Birmingham Repertory Theatre, was a member of the BBC’s Sparks Radio Writers’ group and was Writer in Residence at Worcester Swan Theatre after winning a Pearson bursary.
