How to get tickets
Sorry, this show is over.
Join award-winning New Zealand playwright Gary Henderson at The PumpHouse Theatre for an eight-week course that will introduce you to the essential skills of writing for theatre
You’ll emerge from this course with your own original script for a ten-minute play which will be performed before an audience on The PumpHouse Theatre stage in November 2016.
The programme covers generating characters and stories you believe in, through finding theatrical techniques to present them on stage, to expressing it all in a written script.
You’ll learn about light, sound, silence, action and space as well as the spoken word as part of your vocabulary and we’ll use engaging exercises to provoke you into thinking in three dimensions to create a compelling story for the stage.
