Friends Who Are Going
Event description

Description

Would you like to learn more about the craft of writing for the stage or screen?

Are you interested in seeing how your writing can be brought to life in performance?

Join us on 23rd and 30th November for an exciting series of workshops on writing and performance with industry experts.


Following the workshop from Tim Stimpson on the 23rd where Tim will discuss four chosen scripts written by BCU students and provide his expert feedback, Hannah Jones, a director at the Birmingham Rep, will at this workshop on the 30th explore the improved scripts from the first workshop in performance with the help of a number of professional actors. See the scripts be brought to life and stage with Hannah's professional direction. This is a fantastic opportunity to view the process of creating a performance from page to stage.

If you would like your script to be included in the workshops to be discussed and performed, send your script/sample of writing by 10 am Tuesday 21st November to soudabeh.ananisarab@bcu.ac.uk. Our panel will choose the best four scripts to present to Tim and Hannah. Your work should last around 7-10 minutes in performance and must be written for a group of no more than three actors.

There are limited places available for you to watch the workshops and present your questions for the guests during the Q&A sessions so make sure you book up early!

This series of workshops have been developed by Soudabeh Ananisarab and Natalie Edwards.

Natalie Edwards is a Birmingham born producer and actor and owner of Transition Stage Company. She has worked in Independent Film, Theatre and TV in UK and USA for eight years. Living in New York, she developed an appetite for producing and entrepreneurialism, realizing there wasn’t a platform for international visual artist creative graduates to get professional credits. Transition Stage Company facilitates independent film productions, also creates the conditions where actors and filmmakers could get their work seen through Events, Theatre and cinema in Manhattan. Natalie returned to Birmingham to complete a Masters in Acting and launched Transition Stage Company in Birmingham with its first Pilot awards show 'Enter Stage Write' which was a success with Channel 4 executive commissionaire of Drama Lee Mason as its headline judge.
