Course to develop budding writers

aspiring playwrights and scriptwriters will have a chance to develop their skills as Scripts from Scraps returns for a seven week course at the Georgian Theatre Royal, Richmond.

Taking place on Monday evenings between 6pm and 8pm, the course starts on Monday, September 5, finishing on Monday, October 17 and has only eight places.

Led by writer, actor and director Irene Lofthouse, the series of workshops is the third event of its kind at the theatre.

“The previous two courses resulted in very diverse 10-minute pieces and some of the writers have developed their short pieces into one-act plays,” said Irene.

Prices for the course, which must be booked in advance, are £56 or £45.50 for the over 60s .
