Writing for Performance

Sold out

A fun and fast-paced writing workshop to unlock your imaginations. Get your creative juices flowing with this free writing for performance workshop.

There will be exercises, games, and challenges to help you get started with writing for performance. It’s open to all who have an itch to write or who have already started to write.

All you need is yourselves, your imaginations, a sense of play, and if you have it, a favourite pen and paper. We can provide this otherwise.

The workshop will be run by writer and performance maker Annie Siddons. As a playwright she’s worked with companies including Kneehigh, Bristol Old Vic, National Theatre Studio, BAC and the Gate. As writer/performer she’s made work at Edinburgh British Council Showcase, Latitude and Soho Theatre.

Open to adults aged 18+
