¿Qué aprenderé?


Playwriting at University of Worcester is a uniquely focused course, delivered by a team which includes professional playwrights, to prepare you for a career as a writer for theatre and live performance. Today’s theatre needs new voices: it needs to hear from the young and the under-represented. It needs your voice.

Through developing your understanding of different play structures, approaches to capturing dialogue and plotting narrative, and experimenting with style, you will establish the tools to express your own ideas and concerns in your work. The course will introduce you to how to “think theatrically;” in other words, how to write on the page but with an understanding of how this could come to life on the stage. Theatre is essentially a collaborative art, and playwrights in current theatre practice rarely work in isolation, so experience on the course of working alongside directors, performers, musicians, lighting and set designers and other theatre professionals will deepen your professional practice. Your final play will be workshopped and presented by professional actors in a showcase event.

Within BA Playwriting, you will learn how to get your work published and how to submit your plays to competitions, festivals, theatres and theatre companies. Alongside this, you will explore other career possibilities such as venue script readers, producers, dramaturgs or reviewers. BA Playwriting sits as a Joint Honours degree alongside BA Drama & Performance, or BA Screenwriting, or BA Creative and Professional Writing. Combining Playwriting with one of these subjects will give a real breadth to your writing experience and open opportunities to move forwards in different career directions in theatre, film, TV, radio, digital and print platforms.

There is also an opportunity to extend your experience through a year abroad, for example at a University in Europe, USA, Australia or India, facilitating a more international experience of theatre to inform your own playwriting practice.
