Good Evening No Dramies!

This Tuesdays workshop will be held by the ever-talented Peter Blennerhassett on-

Creating compelling characters.

Why do you care about a character? What is it about some of them that makes you want to spend time with them? What foundations have been put into them to make them feel real and engaging?

In this writing workshop, we’ll create characters, build on them and see what happens when they go out into the big bad world. Make sure you have a way of writing, be that keyboard, pen or ogham stone.

Peter has had the immense pleasure of being involved with No Drama Theatre for the last four years in capacities such as writing, acting, stage management and most recently running the No Drama writers group, the Scribblers.

We are so looking forward to this as usual!Join us on zoom at 7pm, details below!
