A&P Playwriting Workshop – How to Shape a Play: Narrative Structure with Olivier-Award-winning playwright Simon Stephens 

Join leading British playwright Simon Stephens on this playwriting masterclass at Bloomsbury Publishing as he guides you through the skills and techniques needed to understand and practise good narrative structure for writing a successful play.

We all know that stories should have a beginning, a middle and an end. But once we’ve made our start, how do we know how to get to the end? And how can we be sure we’re shaping a story to its fullest dramatic potential?

This intimate one-day workshop for all budding playwrights will combine theory and exercises, with analysis and individual feedback throughout, culminating in a drinks reception: the perfect opportunity for networking. 

It will ideally suit those early-career writers who have already written for the stage, who may yet be unproduced.

Olivier-Award winner Simon Stephens is one of Britain’s best-loved playwrights. The author of more than twenty stage plays, including Punk Rock, Port, Three Kingdoms and Pornography, as well as the celebrated adaptation of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, he is a former tutor on the Royal Court Young Writers Programme. Awards include the Pearson Award for Best New Play, 2001, for Port; Olivier Award for Best New Play for On the Shore of the Wide World, 2005; and Best Foreign Playwright, as voted by German critics in Theater Heute's annual poll, 2007.
