In the second workshop in her series, Meghan Tyler shares techniques to develop your characters.

Anyone Can Write A Play is a free 4-episode 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.

All sessions will be available on-demand on our Youtube channel until 28 February 2023.

This event was 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, and has received additional support from the Scottish Government's Performing Arts Venues Relief Fund and Creative Scotland’s Recovery Fund for Cultural Organisations.

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.
