The Bear Pit Theatre Writers’ Workshop

Come and write plays with us!

The Bear Pit Theatre WritersWorkshop is launching on July 22nd at 7pm on the stage of The Bear Pit Theatre.

It doesn’t matter what experience you have, we welcome you. We will meet once a month at The Bear Pit Theatre. Bring some writing you’re working on, or just bring your ambition to write for the theatre. We’ll create a fun, supportive, non-judgmental community.

Dates for the first six workshops are:

  • 22nd July 7pm-9pm on the Theatre Stage
  • 26th August 7pm-9pm on the Theatre Stage
  • 30th September 7pm-9pm in the Theatre Bar
  • 28th October 7pm-9pm on the Theatre Stage
  • 25th November 7pm-9pm in the Theatre Bar

Come to as many or as few as you wish.

Each month, we will explore an aspect of writing such as:

  • Developing a character
  • Working on your story
  • Building tension
  • Planning stage action.
  • Writing your first ever draft
  • Write just for yourself
  • Finding the central moment in your characters’ journeys
  • Show and tell
  • Telling secrets to your characters

You will meet experienced writers, actors, directors, lighting, sound, costume and set designers who will tell us what works on stage.
So, if you’re new to writing or you have been writing for years, come and join us at The Bear Pit Theatre. We’ll offer you a supportive, fun and rewarding writing experience.
You might even get to see your work performed in The Bear Pit Theatre itself!

Workshops are free. To book a place, click the link here.
Places are limited to 15 on each workshop.

Please note anyone under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian for safeguarding reasons.
