David will be speaking on performance writing for the stage, film, television and radio. It is an opportunity to discover what makes a good script, screenplay and radio drama.
From Page to Stage
Creative writing in a day…sounds dramatic and indeed that is the idea. Picture the best of your creative scribblings being performed; your words, an actor’s voice and a director’s interpretation. It can happen and together we will discover how. All aspects of performance writing for stage, film, television and radio plays will be discussed and demonstrated, alongside what makes a good script, a good screenplay a good radio drama. Lots of fun and opportunities for a bit of shining in the spotlight, for you or for your work. We will pull back the curtain and try to discover our theatrical side.
