9 session workshop 14 May – 17 September 2018

Convener – Cassandra Tse

“…the theater is one of the few places left in the bright and noisy world where we sit in the quiet dark together, to be awake.” – Sarah Ruhl

The Emerging Artists Trust’s Writing for Theatre course is the ideal first step for writers from other disciplines looking to try their hand at creating work for live performance, or for theatre practitioners interested in developing their own material.

Convened by award-winning playwright Cassandra Tse, this nine week workshop will help new playwrights understand and use the underlying concepts of playwriting, including character, action, structure, tension, monologue, and subtext. Participants will spend the second half of the course developing a longer work, and receive feedback in class by their peers.
