Playwriting Courses


In 2017 and 2018 Papatango ran free playwriting courses with Theatre Royal, Bury St Edmunds and Luton’s Hat Factory. Across the two courses, 36 writers created 36 brand new plays, culminating in a staged reading at each venue completely free to a local audience.

These courses followed the success of 2016’s course at the Quarry Theatre, Bedford. The play staged there, Experience by Dave Florez, went on to premiere at Hampstead Theatre.
