Livestream workshop MASTERLIST
There’s loads of brilliant opportunities for writers open to scripts in early 2020- are you writing for the Women’s Prize for Playwriting, or the ETPEP…
We are so delighted to be able to return with the 2022 Bruntwood Prize for Playwriting. The Bruntwood Prize is about so much more than the competition – we want to support people to try writing for the first time, explore their creativity, to not give up when things get tough – to keep going and submit their play for the 6th June deadline.
We recognise that the last two years has been an incredibly difficult time for everyone. When theatres closed and we could no longer enjoy the inspiring experience of sharing stories together, many writers found it hard to be creative. Would theatre ever come back? What would it look like when it did? Can I still be theatrical and creative if I can’t share stories live with an audience of friends and strangers?
There are so many huge questions to ask before you bring yourself to writing. But maybe this makes writing even more important. Humanity, in many ways, has been through a visceral experience of crisis. We need art and stories and shared experiences to help us make sense of what we have been through and our place in the world.
So we want to find ways to support you to get those ideas out, tell us those stories, find those characters voices and build the theatrical world of your work.
