Play time for budding writers
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.
