Want to write a play but don't know where to start?
Or maybe you've written a play in the past, but recently lost all of your creative juices?
Never fear – this is the playwriting series for YOU!
Guided by the wonderful Meghan Tyler (Crocodile Fever, The Persians) you'll write your very own play using just two words. Intrigued? You should be.
With timed exercises, some out-of-the-box logic and a glamorous assistant/guinea pig on hand to demonstrate, you’ll quickly realise that yes… ANYONE CAN WRITE A PLAY.
There's no signup required, so explore the episodes listed below to get started. All sessions will be available on-demand until 28 February 2023.
This event is part of our First Stages Festival - a celebration of storytelling and playwriting.
The Traverse Theatre is funded by Creative Scotland and The City of Edinburgh Council, with additional support from The Scottish Government Performing Arts Venues Relief Fund.
Anyone Can Write a Play is part of the Creative Community - Irish Theatre in Scotland series, a Traverse Theatre partnership with the Consulate General of Ireland, Edinburgh.
