Play time for bud­ding writ­ers

7 Days in Dubai - - LIFE -

Ea­ger writ­ers will learn how the es­sen­tials of pen­ning a play at an in­ten­sive course later this month. The Short+Sweet Play­writ­ing Week­end runs from Thurs­day, Septem­ber 15 to Satur­day 17 Septem­ber. It will ex­plore the five ar­eas that make up a play - char­ac­ter, sit­u­a­tion, di­a­logue, the­atri­cal­ity and dra­matic ten­sion or hu­mour. Ideas for a 10-minute play or short scene will be writ­ten on the Fri­day, and after some in­ten­sive work­shop­ping, it will then be brought to life by ex­pe­ri­enced ac­tors on the Satur­day. The course is run by Alex Broun, an ex­pert in the field of short, 10-minute plays. Course fees are Dhs1,000 for adults and Dhs800 for stu­dents. Con­tact liz@con­stel­la­ to re­serve a place on the course.
