Writing for Stage: a workshop with Deborah McAndrew

BRONTË FESTIVAL OF WOMEN’S WRITING

BRONTË FESTIVAL OF WOMEN’S WRITING

Join playwright Deborah McAndrew for a workshop on writing for the stage, which will combine her extensive advice and experience with more practical exercises, and  a focus on the particular challenges of adapting classic novels.

Deborah’s produced commissions in 2017 include a new stage adaptation of Anne Brontë’s The Tenant of Wildfell Hall for Bolton Octagon and York Theatre Royal,
a reworking of Rostand’s Cyrano de Bergerac for Northern Broadsides, and adaptations of Arnold Bennett’s Anna of the Five Towns for New Vic Theatre and Dickens’  A Christmas Carol for Hull Truck. She is also the writer on The Chester Mysteries 2018, and produces her own work through her company Claybody Theatre, based in Stoke-on-Trent.

Tickets £20 (£10 for 16-25 year olds). Please book in advance at www.bronte.org.uk/whats-on or by calling 01535 642323.
