Causing a Scene

Building the narrative necklace

Raucous Exchanges - Session 4
Date Thursday 26 August (Time 4-6.15pm UK time)

Theatre scriptwriting masterclass and workshop with award-winning playwright Sharon Clark.

What do we need to consider when threading scenes together to make a narrative whole? What are the challenges? How do we make decisions about which scenes in the script are urgent, and what is their role in propelling the story forward?

A mixture of masterclass and workshop, this session will explore how scenes are the foundations of script, how they inform dynamic structure and how they can accelerate tension, pace and impact.
