In this week's workshop, Meghan Tyler introduces some key concepts and how, with only two words, you can find your theme, characters and setting.

Anyone Can Write A Play is a free 4-week course led by Meghan Tyler (Crocodile Fever, The Persians) that will support you - and fellow aspiring writers - 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 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.
