New Views Scriptwriting Programme
This has been an inspiring and creative week for Caterham playwrights. On Monday the New Views Scriptwriting group were invited to watch the National Theatre’s incredible new production of Hadestown. Anaïs Mitchell’s new musical tells the story of Orpheus and Eurydice as she is lured to the depths of an industrial Hadestown, blended with New Orleans jazz and stunning dancing.
On Wednesday award winning playwright Paula B Stanic visited our pupils to run a creative writing workshop for the group. Paula shared her extensive experience of script writing with the group, exploring stimulus ideas, characterisation and the importance of finding your own voice within your play. The session was incredibly helpful, with practical support and encouragement offered to all pupils to guide the development of their work. Each pupil will now work independently on creating their own original script for submission to the National Theatre in Spring 2019.Back to all news
