Two workshops announced

The Fringe Festival 2015 will feature two workshops for budding playwrights and/or directors. Today we can announce the details of these workshops.

The first is entitled ‘The fifteen minute play – Writing for the Fringe‘ and will be hosted by John Corless, Director of the Claremorris Fringe. In this intensive two-day workshop writers will be encouraged to bring their writing materials with them, be it laptop or quill and inkwell, as the object of the exercise is that each participant will write a 15 minute play by its end. This workshop will take place on Saturday, February 28th, and Sunday, March 1st.

The second workshop will be ‘The Director as Artist‘ and will take place over two days, March 7th and 8th. Whilst set and costume designers pay a huge role, the final creators of the actual performance are the directors who draw all the pieces together on a space we call a stage. In this workshop, we will attempt to explore the nature and constitution of an ensemble using theatrical techniques and skills in the pursuit of excellence. The host will be poet and dramatist Terry McDonagh.
