Devising and Writing for Theatre

 Thursday 6th December  2:00 - 4:30PM G07 Drama Theatre

In this workshop Shock Therapy Co-Founders, Sam Foster and Hayden Jones will take you through their unique process of creating new, original theatre.  Using true stories as a starting point Sam and Hayden will show you how to use devised scenarios to generate dramatic content and engaging narratives.  They will demonstrate how these devised scenarios can then be pieced together to form the basis for characters, relationships, scenes and entire plays.  The workshop is focused on process as opposed to outcomes and aims to give you an insight into a different approach to writing for the stage.

This workshop requires no experience in acting or theatre, just an open mind and a willingness to play and explore!
