Description


Responsibilities
Work to deadlines to deliver good quality, original dramatic scripts.
Rewrite as per critical feedback on creative ideas, from “dramaturgs” (sometimes called ‘script editors’) to directors and actors.
Collaborate with the production team to turn the ‘map’ (play script) into something for actors to follow.
Be open to working in groups without getting defensive about their own work and the ways it can change.

Requirements

Qualifications
Playwrights trade on their writing ability, so there are no formal academic demands. However, an A-level equivalent in English or Drama can be helpful for equipping the playwright with the technical knowledge and observational ability which will enable them to write at a high level. In terms of “informal” studies or certificates, there are many groups and short courses which seek to serve the aspiring playwright in giving them the technical ability with which to succeed. Often the best course of learning is to see as many plays as possible, and to study the written or dramatic work of other writers.
