Through this course with Gavin Kostick, you will be immersed in practical discussions and exercises for playwriting, with a particular focus on drawing on life experiences to make effective and meaningful work for the public. The course will draw on a range of successful contemporary Irish plays to show how playwrights and performers have successfully explored their own biography and family histories in creating drama. Each week there will be set reading and discussion of the ways in which it can be done and each participant will be guided through talking about their impulse and story, to making good structural choices and work towards drama which resonates and communicates with an audience. This is a practical course suitable for writers and potential performers.
