We are looking for playwrights to submit a new play which is currently in development (i.e. you are in the process of writing it), and actors to read through key scenes and give their feedback on the whole play. Other creatives (directors, designers, etc) are also invited to give their feedback.
The online sessions will help our playwrights to develop their work, and help attendees to develop connections with other creatives throughout these difficult times - and enjoy some great plays!
You will be sent the play extract to read through in advance. Then on the Thursday, you will be invited via email to a Zoom online session at 11.30am. This will be a video call with the playwright, a member of the Masterclass team, and around 8 other creatives, where we read the opening scene (giving actors a chance to practise their table read skills!), discuss the play, and provide feedback to the writer to help them develop their script.
