‘Write Two’ is our NEW intermediate script writing group in partnership with the Royal Court Theatre!
Write Two members form a new Writers Group led by a Royal Court-produced playwright at the Royal Court Theatre.
The lead playwright will guide members through a gentle process to write a *full-length play.
With writing time built into the structure of the group, members will also receive one-to-one dramaturgical support from the company’s literary department. Writers will build on the work they have undertaken in Write Now to delve deeper into structure, story, character and to develop their unique voice as a playwright.
A selection of short pieces will be rehearsed by professional actors and directors to share with an audience in 2022.
This group is for those writers excited by the challenge of taking the next step with their writing and as such requires a minimum of 3 months continuous commitment to one of our drop-in Write Now groups in order to join.
*the emphasis will be on completing a full idea for a play rather than on actual length of the play – for these purposes a full-length piece can mean anything from 25 mins and above
See what one participant has to say about his experience so far:
“In Write Two, we are collaborating with a professional Playwright to propel our writing to the next level. Writing at The Royal Court (The Writer’s Theatre) is a privilege that not many writers get to experience. Taking the values of Outside Edge and merging it with radical thinking in an inspirational setting provokes us to produce work that is well beyond that which we could hope to achieve by ourselves… all whilst smiling, laughing and supporting each other on our creative journey.” – Matthew McGuigan, ‘Write Two’ participant
