Workshop: Verity Bargate Award 2024

Join Tamasha and Soho Theatre as we explore all aspects of this year’s Verity Bargate Award – from how to apply to what to consider as you prepare your script for its submission for Soho Theatre.

With the submission window for the Award open until 17 June, Soho Theatre have been hosting playwriting workshops at venues across the UK and Ireland.

For this workshop, they are specifically inviting artists associated with Tamasha to join them.

Facilitated by Pooja Sivaraman (Creative Associate, Soho Theatre), within the workshop, writers will be provided with information about the scope of Soho Theatre’s current programs, their theatre spaces, and what storytelling and theatricality mean to them.

In the first part of the workshop, writers will learn about the Verity Bargate Award and Soho Theatre’s heritage of new writing.

In the second part of the workshop, participants will explore the merits and possible limitations of dramatic conventions. Finally, participants will look at the script samples of plays that have been programmed by Soho Theatre and interrogate that tactics used by playwrights to captivate their audiences.
