Soho Theatre Writers Lab- deadline Sun 4th, bursaries available

The Soho Theatre Writers’ Lab programme is designed to help participants create a new full-length play or piece of theatre, over 9 months. They  meet participants once a month from October through to June, on Tuesday evenings or Saturdays. Workshops cover a wide range of topics and are led by Chris White, Lakesha Arie-Angelou, Holly DeAngelis and Jules Haworth with a number of guest artists involved over the year. They take writers through a three-draft process with one-to-one dramaturgy support and at the end of the process writers submit to the prestigious Tony Craze Award (annual)/Verity Bargate Award (biennial).


The early bird fee for the full programme is £150 and there are bursaries available to anyone on Universal Credit or other benefits
