Introduction to Playwriting Workshop

Free Introduction to Playwriting Workshop at Sherman Theatre

This June as part of our Summer of Celebration, Sherman Theatre are thrilled to be able to offer FREE creative writing workshops for young people ages 15 – 18.

These workshops, part of our hugely popular Introduction to Playwriting programme are places where young people can explore and develop their creative writing skills, as well as sharing their voice with others, with the help of professional writers, directors and actors.

On Saturday 2nd July we are looking forward to welcoming young LGBTQIA+ people. In a space facilitated by LGBTQIA+ artists we hope that young people will find a place where they can belong, where they can be themselves and explore the incredible stories they want to tell.

Sherman Theatre’s Creative Engagement activity offers inclusive and safe spaces for LGBTQIA+ young people and their families. Our group leaders will always use and respect the pronouns and chosen names of trans and non-binary participants and their guardians.

The session runs from 10am – 4pm at the Sherman Theatre, Senghennydd Road, Cardiff CF24 4YE.

The work created by the young people will be performed by professional actors on Saturday 9th July as part of an evening of other work written by young people and we hope you can join us for both the workshop and the sharing.

Thanks to the on-going generous support of the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation we are able to offer these workshops FREE of charge, but spaces are limited.
