Writing Live: The Bake-Off

Following on from Writing Live, a crash course in writing for performance, join us for a two-day rapid playwriting challenge.

Turn off your filter and experiment with your craft, based on the methodologies of US playwright Paula Vogel.

Day One is a fast and loose suite of frameworks, exercises, provocations and silver bullets to get the creative fires burning. Then we all go home with a list of key ingredients ripped from an iconic play to revamp, remix, repurpose and reimagine – and write a new play each overnight.

Day Two we reconvene around the table to break bread and read out our freshly cooked first drafts together. No audience, no rewrites, no critiques – just the joy of writing something new.

Facilitated by Amelia Evans and Mark Pritchard

Presented in partnership with New Working Group and Brunswick Mechanics Institute. Supported by the Rodney Seaborn Playwrights Trust.
