Theatre Writings

Level 5 (30 credits)

This module is intended to develop your writing for and about the stage. Each week you will be set creative writing tasks that will help you develop your own skills in writing. Over the semester, you will build up a portfolio of creative pieces and be required to analyse the work of other students. In addition, we will be looking at plays in performance and on the page, and we will practice effective ways of writing about theatre as well as for it.
