Writing for Performance (NSDF19)

Location: City Hall 

In this workshop we'll explore forms of writing that don't necessarily fit into 'conventional' playwriting structures - how can we use written text in ways that support and carry the purpose of a piece of theatre without necessarily writing a 'play'?

He has ongoing collaborations with Rachel Chavkin (Confirmation/Status), Rachel Bagshaw (The Shape of the Pain), and Lucy Ellinson (Torycore).
