What’s the Big Idea?

Led by Oliver Emanuel

Playwrights' Studio Associate Playwright Oliver Emanuel (Flight, The 306 Trilogy) takes you through a story and ideas workout: how to generate them, crystallise them and talk about them.  

This will help in your own writing and re-drafting, and improve your confidence when talking to directors or potential supporters about the story you want to tell - and why you are the only person who can tell it.

Ideally suited for aspiring/emerging playwrights.

Oliver Emanuel is an internationally award-winning playwright based in Scotland. He has written over 30 plays for both stage and radio.

Oliver is Reader of Playwriting at the University of St Andrews, an Associate Playwright at Playwright Studio Scotland, and Writer-in-Residence at Gladstone's Library. His plays are published by Oberon Books.
