The Collective: Makers

This group is for anyone who has an idea for a play: you might have written dozens of plays before, or this might be your very first play idea! This group meets over the course of a few months and is taught playwriting techniques to develop their own ideas. The course culminates in participants developing a 10-15 minute extract of their own brand new play.

Warts and All Theatre will select some of these extracts for our Scuff Night in the Summer term.
