CRITERION New Writing is a ground-breaking education program offered by The Criterion Theatre Trust – a series of script development workshops taking place on stage at the Cri. It is free to apply and take part. The workshops are led by Greg Mosse.
For a new playwright, the stages of professional theatres seem incredibly distant. For new actors, the environment is exciting – but also daunting.The stage of the Criterion Theatre in the heart of London's West End is the perfect arena in which to break down those barriers and create new opportunities for new creative voices.
Yours could be one of those voices ...
How does a playwright learn to write for a West End stage? How does an actor prepare for the challenge of performing in a magnificent ‘traditional’ theatre? Join the CRITERION New Writingprogram and find out.
The workshops are led by Greg Mosse, an immensely experienced writer, teacher, editor and script consultant.
There are six workshops in each sequence. In workshops 1 and 2, Greg will help each playwright to develop their individual understanding of narrative structure so that they get the most out of the dramatic situation they are writing about. In workshop 3, the playwrights will meet actors for the first time who will perform their speeches from the stage. In weeks 4, 5 and 6, a group of actors will take part, reading aloud the brand-new scenes.
The playwrights will actually see and hear their scripts come to life.
