Last Few Tickets

***Please note: this is an online event***

In this workshop writer and theatre maker, Becci Sharrock, will guide you through creating a scene for the stage. In a whistle stop tour, we’ll 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 scene to take away and develop, with the skills you need to do so.

If you’ve attended/completed the Daily Writes, you have the option to use some of the ideas you’ve generated in this workshop but it’s not essential.

A note about Zoom from Becci:

Zoom is great for making content accessible but we know it can also come with its own challenges and anxieties. Please note: Becci is more than happy for you to access it in whatever way works for you. If you prefer your video off, that’s fine and if you have it on, please don’t worry about kids/partners/pets in the background – it’s all part of the Zoom experience. The most important thing is that you can take part. If you have any access needs, please get in touch and we’ll do our best to accommodate these.
