“Sessions will be led by our in-house staff and visiting experts from across the industry, and enrolment on the course will include access to at least two existing online theatre productions”

The short course entitled “Responding and Adapting to the New Normal” is an eight-week series of sessions for anyone living within South East London at the early stages of their writing career.  The course will run on Monday evenings from the 11th January to the 1st March. Sessions will look at character, structure and style, and build to each participant creating a short play responding to their recent experience of the world. Each piece will be created specifically to reflect the ‘new normal’ and will be designed to be performed online or without an audience. Final plays will be performed by professional actors and released online in the week of the 29th March. As part of the government’s Cultural Recovery programme, this course is free of charge to successful applicants and no previous writing experience is necessary. Sessions will take place online or in person in Deptford where possible) and participants will be expected to complete tasks outside of the classroom.
