How To Write A Short Play – Part of the Main online course (£45)

June 16 – July 4 • 6 – 8 PM • £45

Over 4 sessions led by writer and facilitator Aisling Caffrey, participants will create a 10-15 minute play from inception to read through.

The course is perfect for anyone who has an interest in writing scripts. With so many opportunities out there to submit short plays, this is a great course to get started, hone your skills or develop that idea you’ve had brewing!

Workshop 1, Tuesday June 16, 6-8 PM:

Participants will look at the basics of what a script needs, using exercises you can take away with of the Main online course (£45) you and with writing time during the session to generate new ideas or expand on an idea you already have.

Workshop 2, Tuesday June 23, 6-8 PM:

Participants will do further work on your decided play looking further in to character, dialogue and plot.

Workshop 3, Tuesday June 30, 6-8 PM:

Delving further into the work created, we will work on the structure of your piece.

Showcase, Saturday July 4, 5 PM:

Participants will hear each piece read aloud and offer feedback. Hearing work aloud is an invaluable part of the script writing process.

To get the most out of the workshops, participants will be expected to write in between each session so that by the end of the course you have a piece of work you can take forward with you.
