Writing a theatre play with Tom Wells

Saturday 16th May

11am to 4pm 

The National Theatre. The Royal Court. Birmingham Rep. The West Yorkshire Playhouse. Hull Truck. Paines Plough. Any aspiring playwright would give their non-dominant arm to work with those names, right?

So when award-winning writer Tom Wells, who has worked with all of them and more, says he’ll be giving you a series of writing exercises to help you build a plan for a full-length play, you really don’t want to sleep on it. Set your alarm.

How to put on your own play with Dick Bonham

Saturday 11th July

11am to 4pm 

If you’re a regular at Script Yorkshires Q&A sessions, you’ll have heard our pro-writer panel members say this again and again: Don’t sit and wait for a lucky break. Create your own opportunities. Stage your own work.

If those sentiments scare you and you’ve no idea how you’d even begin to do that, this is the workshop for you! Experienced writer, director and producer Dick Bonham is taking time out from making brilliant theatre to share his knowledge with us. Stop waiting to be chosen. Carpe diem!
