Learn Writing for Theatre with Gary Henderson
Join award-winning New Zealand playwright Gary Henderson at The PumpHouse Theatre for an eight-week course that will introduce you to the essential skills of writing for theatre.
The programme covers generating characters and stories you believe in, through finding theatrical techniques to present them on stage, to expressing it all in a written script.
You’ll learn about light, sound, silence, action, and space as well as the spoken word as part of your vocabulary and we’ll use engaging exercises to provoke you into thinking in three dimensions to create a compelling story for the stage.
The course is designed for people who have little or no experience in playwriting.
This year the programme will have two sessions online.
