About Anyone Can Write A Play

Anyone Can Write A Play is a free 4-week course led by Meghan Tyler (Crocodile Fever, The Persians) that will support you - and fellow aspiring writers - to write your very own play using just two words. Intrigued? You should be.

With timed exercises, some out-of-the-box logic and a glamorous assistant/guinea pig on hand to demonstrate, you’ll quickly realise that yes… ANYONE CAN WRITE A PLAY.

There's no signup required but to get the episodes as soon as they're released, you can subscribe to our Youtube channel. For those who may want to work on your ideas for a little longer, all sessions will be available on-demand until 1 March 2022.

This event is part of our First Stages Festival - a celebration of storytelling and playwriting.

In this week's workshop, Meghan Tyler introduces some key concepts and how, with only two words, you can find your theme, characters and setting.

Episode 4: Available from 24th February
