Writing for the Stage workshop

After a successful first event, TORCH is running a second Writing for the Stage workshop on Saturday 1 February – and we have four spaces remaining!

Led by playwright, actor and artistic director Sudha Bhucha, researchers and students from Oxford University will be paired with young people from a local youth group. Together, they’ll explore character development and world building, before producing short pieces of writing for the stage based on, or in response to, their own life experiences.

Participants found the first workshop inspirational and the sharing of insights and experiences with young people particularly valuable.

This is a fantastic opportunity to develop stage writing skills and to gain experience working with a professional practitioner and with young people in the arts.

The workshop takes place in Radcliffe Humanities from 9.45am – 3.30pm. Lunch will be provided and any travel costs reimbursed. This opportunity is open to research and taught students from all departments, faculties and schools.

If you’d like to sign up, or have any questions, please contact Dr Hannah Coleman Manktelow (hannah.manktelow@humanities.ox.ac.uk).
