ANYONE CAN WRITE A PLAY with Meghan Tyler

What's on On demand until 1 March 2022

About

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!

Over the course of four workshops, released Wednesday lunchtimes from 3 Feb, you'll be guided by the wonderful Meghan Tyler (Crocodile Fever, The Persians) to 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 but to get the episodes as soon as they're released, you can subscribe to our YouTube channel. For those of you who may want to work on your ideas for a little longer, all sessions will be available on-demand until 1 March 2022.

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.
