Event Description

Writing Theatre-in-Education
Saturday 3rd July 2010 (10am-5pm)
Light House, Wolverhampton
Led by Arzhang Pezhman


Theatre-In-Education (TiE) is a growing area of employment for writers. A large number of companies in the UK specialise in developing and producing theatre for schools, building plays around a particular educational topic or debate. This one-day workshop will introduce participants to the fundamentals of writing for young audiences. Through the exploration of both theory and practice in playwriting, it will help participants develop a thorough understanding of writing for commission and writing to a brief. The aim of the workshop is to both develop writing techniques and the individual’s voice but also to consider playwriting as a vocation, specifically in education.

Arzhang Pezhman ‘s play Bolt-Hole was produced in 2006 at the Birmingham Repertory Theatre. He has also written a play for the Young REP, Tics , which was produced in 2005. Arzhang has also had his work produced by the Royal Court Theatre – Local (2000) and Come Around (2003). In 2003 he was commissioned to write a full-length play Mother’s Day , which was performed by pupils at Wolverhampton Grammar School . He was also Writer-in-Residence at the Soho Theatre in 2006.
Cost: £50 (£40 concessions)
