HOW WILL IT WORK?

If you are looking for a way to showcase your talent and keep yourself engaged creatively, writing and performing a solo show can be the ideal format.

In this three-hour workshop, Milly Thomas (Dust, Clickbait, BBC3’s Clique) and Lisa Carroll (Cuckoo, Soho Theatre) will open up discussion around the monologue form. The workshop will involve helpful exercises for getting started with writing and finding your own voice. We will also look at the logistical considerations of writing and performing your own work.

Bring a pen and paper - and plenty of ideas and questions!
