Free, but book in advance

Taster session as part of The Right Twig, an exciting new young playwrights’ programme with Fighting Words Belfast and the Lyric Theatre

“There are many stories about X-Town. All of them are true. Everything happened.”

This fast-moving, hands-on workshop, presented with Accidental Theatre, builds on everyone’s ideas, using improvisation and writing to create new characters and tiny performances that bring X-Town to life. See how stories become theatre and watch your ideas take dramatic shape. Presented as part of the CS Lewis Festival.

This workshop is free and open to 14 to 18 year olds and will give a glimpse of what The Right Twig drama and writing workshops will be like. Places are limited to 12 per taster, e-mail emily@fightingwords.co.uk to reserve your place.

More about The Right Twig:

Writers have to start somewhere, and playwrights have it the hardest. Scripts need lots of collaboration – not to mention performers and an audience – before they start to take shape. THE RIGHT TWIG will give young people in Belfast (ages 14-18) the chance to write new pieces for the stage, and see professional directors and actors bring them to life. We’ll work from the foundations up – whether you’re trying play-writing for the first time or already love theatre and want to dive deeper. This is the first time Fighting Words Belfast and the Lyric have collaborated, and we can’t wait to get started.
