Scene 6. June
We’ve all heard Stanislavski’s famous quote, “Spectators come to the theatre to hear the subtext.” The subtext is a glorious medium. It adds depth – there’s the conversation that two characters are having, and there’s the conversation underneath the conversation the two characters are having. The meaning behind the words. Everything that isn’t said. But we can’t be constantly thinking about the subtext and structure into every line we write. Sometimes a character has to say exactly what they mean and drama will come from having to deal with that level of the truth. It’s important to know how to do it, but don’t get too caught up in it.
The main motive of this platform is to encourage people to write plays that fight injustice, inequality and discrimination. There are so many ways to create awareness to get people thinking differently. Writing a play is one of them. WNB believes in the therapeutic outcome of writing. It takes away the feeling of hopelessness and powerlessness. If you are interested in the current issues in the world and would like to do something about it rather than just complaining, join our workshops and get writing.
If you can not make it after you registered to the workshop please let us know so we can let others in.
* During the workshop we will be making a film and taking photos that will appear later on this website and in our social media platforms. Please let us know if you don’t want to be in them.
