Event Details

Are you an actor looking for ways to approach a text? A director looking for a practical reliable process to take into rehearsal? Or maybe you are a writer looking to better understand narrative and dramatic structures? 
Explore all these things at our Script Analysis Lab. Featuring talks, practical sessions and group work, the Lab will give you concrete guidance to help hone your skills, and to enhance your understanding – all in a supportive environment of like-minded artists and potential collaborators.
“I learnt so much in such a short time – and came away feeling energised, stimulated and inspired!”

  • Breaking down scripts into the basic elements of circumstances and events: What is actually happening in a scene when you look past the lines?
  • Deriving characters’ intentions out of the circumstances in a useful and applicable way – for when you are tired of playing transitive verbs!
  • Revealing story structure: We will be unpicking why good scripts actually work! Why does a script have this beginningthis middle, and this end? We will explore how efficient narrative structures do the work that dialogue alone cannot.

The Lab is delivered by our Artistic Director, Dan Sherer. Dan is playwright, director and academic who works nationally and internationally. He is a regular tutor at RADA, specialising in working with new plays and teaching improvisation and devising within the Stanislavski tradition. He was recently attached to the Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute, New York. Previously he worked for Mike Leigh at the Royal National Theatre and trained at the National Theatre Studio.
The Lab takes places on Saturday 11 April from 10am - 4pm in London (venue tbc).
Tickets cost £50 (plus booking fee) and include online resources for your future use and lunch. Get in touch for group and student discounts.
