In this workshop, writer and theatre maker, Becci Sharrock, will guide you through all elements of writing for the stage. In a whistle stop tour, you will think about the themes you want to explore in your work, create interesting characters, find their voices and motivations, and plot their journey so that by the end of the workshop you have a brand new idea to take away and develop, and the skills you need to extend this into a full play.
