 We all enjoy the theatre, whether it's a full-length drama or a short skit. But how do you write a play? This is a different medium to a novel and uses a different narrative form. A good play, whether drama or comedy, is carried by mystery and the questions the play poses. Come and learn the difference and dare to write a short play during this 90-minute workshop.
