Writing Historical Plays

  • Spring 2014
  • Graeae Theatre, London
  • Practical playwriting workshop

I designed this practical workshop to suggest possible ways of approaching the challenge of writing historical plays. The workshop included approaches to the research process, generating and synthesising ideas and ways of tackling period dialogue, as a solo practice and also in a collaborative, workshop setting. I used the process I created when writing, researching and workshopping my own plays Alice’s Adventures in the New World and World Enough and Time as examples of working.
