Devising a play with Lucy Campbell

11am to 4pm in the City Room at Leeds Playhouse

An awesome opportunity to experience what it's like to work closely with actors to devise a piece of theatre. This is a rare chance for you to break out of your writer's hermitage and collaborate with Lucy on her new Arts Council-funded project!

Saturday 12th November

Writing a theatre play with Tom Wells

11am to 4pm in the City Room at Leeds Playhouse

Let's not be fooled by Tom's youthful appearance; he has a dozen plays already published by Nick Hern books, all of which have been performed on renowned stages up and down the country. This workshop promises writing enlightenment for a November day!

"You find that plays, radio dramas, TV series and movies are written by people just like you. They fret, they struggle, occasionally triumph. They live in Yorkshire. They belong to Script Yorkshire."
