Scriptwriting Workshop 2015

Hot on the heels of two successive writing workshops, Louth Playgoers are teaming up with local professional theatre company Hambledon Productions for another exciting summer of new writing.

TypewrightLed by professional playwright John Hewer (B.A. Hons. Drama and Scriptwriting, and graduate of the Royal Court Young Writers’ Programme and Soho Theatre’s Writers’ Lab), the course consists of 8 weekly sessions exploring structure, devising plot and characters, genre, writing for other media and taking your writing to the next level.

The course will also mark the return of the excellent Scratch Night, where the writers will have a sample of their work performed in front of an audience, who in turn get to vote for their favourite piece. The winning writer will then get the opportunity to have their completed play produced on behalf of the society in 2016.

Sessions begin on Sunday 28th June at the Riverhead Theatre, and will continue weekly, finishing 30th August.

The course is open to those aged 15+ and is for anyone regardless of previous experience and is priced at just £40. All you need is a strong desire to write plus a pen and paper!

To reserve a place (maximum number of 6 participants), please call the Riverhead Theatre on 01507 600350 or visit the box office, open 10am-1pm, Monday to Saturday.
