Watch This Session

As creative people many of us do not want to be pigeon holed. Some of us write movies, some TV, some poetry, others music. Heck some of us paint, sing, dance… so why not write theatre as well as screenplays?

During this session, our panel will share their own personal experiences writing theatre, how they got their work produced and what it has meant for their creativity, careers and bank balances. An emphasis will be placed on smaller scale productions where immediate action can deliver rapid rewards.

You will leave with a detailed step by step plan of what you can do right now, to get your work on stage and in front of audiences.
