Miller Performing Arts: Pull Back the Curtain 2020 Youth Scriptwriting Initiative
17 | 04 | 2020 (5pm – 8pm)
18 – 19 | 04 | 2020 (9am – 4pm)
The city’s most innovative English-language youth scriptwriting initiative returns! Join us for our 2020 programme and bring your scriptwriting ideas to life.
Through a series of workshops led by professional theatre practitioner Jessica de Borja, Pull Back the Curtain 2020 guides you to create your own original 15-minute theatre piece. This year we focus on how language changes and evolves, generation by generation. We also look at how writers can use spoken word, poetry and multimodal text to take inspiration from the past and make something contemporary that is uniquely their own. Participants explore a wide range of classic and contemporary texts by up-and-coming and world-renowned playwrights, such as Bryony Lavery and Morgan Malcolm Lloyd, and create powerful, thought-provoking work that inspires inventive movement and action on stage.
At the end of the programme, two scripts will receive a staged reading and the most promising script will be transformed into a theatre production on 25 & 26 September 2020.
The writers of the selected scripts will meet the director and be invited to rehearsals. They must also be available to attend all performances and post-performance Meet the Artist sessions on 25 & 26 September 2020.
