Introducing our second Writers Collaborative Workshop

Following the huge success of our first writing & theatre creating workshop for young people in 2021 we are holding our second workshop this Summer. It takes place in Brighton and we are inviting young people across Sussex to audition to join us for a week. During this week you will work alongside Writer, Ella Dorman-Gajic and Director Gary Sefton. With their guidance you will write and create an original piece of theatre to perform on the final day of the collaboration week. The workshop will be overseen by Artistic Director, Melody Roche.
