Event description
Playwright Tom Morton-Smith leads a workshop exploring multi-character scenes and balancing a multitude of voices.

About this Event

A look at how multiple characters can interact on stage and how they might move as a pack whilst remaining true to their own dramatic arc. A look at group dynamics and hierarchies and how best to balance a multitude of voices without losing your audience. People often fall into recognisable roles within groups - the leader, the hothead, the quiet one, the attention seeker.

This session will look at ways to evoke these recognisable tropes in a way to communicate the dynamics of any given group to an audience quickly and effectively, without losing the individuality of your characters.

Tom Morton-Smith’s plays include Ravens: Spassky vs. Fischer (Hampstead Theatre); The Earthworks (Royal Shakespeare Company); Oppenheimer (Royal Shakespeare Company/Vaudeville Theatre - West End); In Doggerland (Box of Tricks - national tour); Everyday Maps for Everyday Use (Finborough Theatre/Papatango); Uncertainty (Latitude Festival); Salt Meets Wound (Theatre503). Tom was writer-in-residence at Paines Plough Theatre Company, 2007-2008.
