Led by award-winning playwright Ian Townsend, this 3-hour interactive workshop focuses on the portrayal of women on stage.
First reading and analysing extracts from plays, there will be an examination of the Bechdel Test, which asks if a work of fiction features at least two women talking to each other about something other than a man.
After discussing potential themes and dramatic structures for new writing, there will be time for each participant to write a short play for two women. These will be performed the following night by professional actors at The Baum.
Please note – this workshop is open to women AND men!
