Beloved novels, short stories, historical narratives and folklore have long been treasure troves of inspiration for playwrights. However, the next step - that of adapting such a work into an exciting, playable script - can be a daunting one. This workshop will look at how to lift an existing work from the page and turn it into a living, breathing piece that can fill a large stage - in emotional scope, visual excitement, narrative drive, and audience appeal.

We'lll talk about how to remain true to the source material whilst finding your own voice, shaping content and pacing, and the glorious challenge of wrangling multiple character arcs, as well as creative practicalities, such as the value of fully envisioning the world of your play. Over the course of three hours (which will include some sizzling but entirely un-scary writing exercises!) we'll look at the intricate and innovative task of honouring the work that inspired you, so that you can craft a play that will thrill an audience as much as the original piece thrilled you.
