Playwriting with Inua Ellams
Award-winning playwright and poet Inua Ellams returns to the Roundhouse after his critically acclaimed Barber Shop Chronicles took over our main space last summer. Join Ellams for a structured, yet scattershot 90 minute workshop during which he’ll shine a light on his approach to telling stories on stage.
Through sharing his own experiences, examples and interactive exercises, Inua will focus on concepts such as generating epic stories from our names, the inner workings of dialogue and how space and setting can dramatically change and elevate even the most mundane of topics into an engaging piece of theatre.
Whether you’re a seasoned writer or have never written a thing, this workshop will provide valuable insight and practical takeaways that you can apply to your own work, from one of the UK’s most celebrated writers.
