Playwriting Courses


Papatango will deliver a free playwriting course at Theatre Royal Bury St Edmunds from July-November 2017. We want to hear from budding writers across Suffolk looking to take part!

Over the 5 months of the course, 16 participants will be guided through the process of conceiving, writing and redrafting a play. There will be workshops on 15 July, 12 August, 16 September and 7 October. One of the plays will then be picked for a staged reading on 13 November,  completely free for a local audience.

If you are available on these dates, near to Bury St Edmunds, and want to hone your playwriting skills, please email with the subject line: “[Your Name] Bury Writers’ Course” and a 200 word letter explaining why you’d like to take part. No prior experience is necessary, but we would like to know what you hope to gain from the course and what kind of story you’d like to tell. The deadline to email us is midnight on 2 July 2017.
