It is a universally accepted truth that ‘all drama is based around conflict' - so join us for these 4 workshops exploring anger, 'what makes us angry?' and ‘how can we use that to create stage work?'
Work with Clare Prenton writer/director over 4 weeks to create new, short monologues/duologues exploring things that make us angry today. On the ‘better out than in’ principal, we’ll look at the cathartic benefits of exploring anger and the complex and wide range of topics - social, political, familial, personal. No experience is necessary - so come and act, direct, write, do all three or, if you’d like to be part of the conversation, simply join us!
Four Mondays from 19.00 - 20.30 at Heart of Hawick from 11 September to 2 October.
This workshop has been subsidised so just £15 for 4 workshops. Age 18+
