Central is excited to have specially re-purposed its introductory playwriting course for online provision whilst maintaining the fundamental qualities of the process.

Course Overview

Meeting twice a week for eight intensive lessons this playwriting course is an exciting opportunity to work with an established playwright to explore the fundamentals of writing a play. You will be working in a virtual group on Zoom with one of our experienced online tutors.

Admission requirements

Who is this course suitable for?

This course is open access and may suit actors trying to write their one person show, comedians wanting to pin down their routine in writing, unpublished playwrights trying to fine tune their work and complete beginners who have an idea and want to find the most effective way to bring it to fruition. This is an excellent opportunity to gain a practical understanding of the playwriting process.

Age: Minimum age is 18 on the first day of the course. No upper age limit.

Language requirements: Applicants must be confident speaking and reading English to a conversational level (IELTS score of 7.0 or equivalent). Please note, you will be expected to read texts/scripts that may have advanced vocabulary in them on this course.

Maximum class size: 12

Tuition fees

Refunds: We are able to offer a full refund up until 7 days before the course begins. After this the course will become fully non-refundable.

Career opportunities

If you go on to complete your play in your own time once the course has been completed, for an additional fee, you can submit your completed play to the tutor for written feedback.

Alternatively you may wish to continue on to Playwriting: Intermediate where you can return to further your development of your play and take the next steps towards completing your script under the guidance of the tutor.
