The latest series of workshops ran online on Saturdays from 12th June to 21st August. The course was led by Sara Shaarawi with some workshops led by guests artists.

Participants developed skills in writing for the stage and also explored other forms of creative writing, such as poetry. The group also had opportunities to watch live theatre.

Keep an eye on this page for details of future workshops.

Short Film Screening 2021

3 scripts written by participants of the group were presented at an online film screening in October 2021.

These scripts were written with the support of Sara Shaarawi. They were turned into short pieces of theatre on film with professional actors, directed by Shilpa T-Hyland.

The online screening was free to attend. It included a Q&A with Sara and the writers.
