Description

The Playwriting at the Pit workshops return for 2019. They are a sounding board for writers at all stages of development, a space for work in progress and a launch pad for new ideas.

Saffron Myers (Paines Plough, Hampstead Theatre) and Mike Carter (The Space, London Playwriting Lab, South London Writers' Group) are delighted be working at the Cockpit Theatre studios this Spring to help develop more plays and support more new writing.

Playwriting at the Pit has been devised to support writers with new work. Whether you are established or just starting out, we can help you focus, get your ideas on paper and move forward with your drafts. The programme comprises nine weekly sessions led by Saffron and Mike at the Cockpit with a writing week for you to work on your play in your own time.

Sessions take place on Wednesdays from 730-930pm as below. The Cockpit is a short walk from Marlybone Station.
