This January we are launching Pizza & Plays, an exciting new project for young people 18-35 with the National Theatre in London. Our weekly workshops will provide a unique opportunity to read and discuss some of the most iconic, brilliant plays of the past century which focus on themes of faith, belief and identity, whilst eating pizza together.
We will also have a go at writing our own plays, drawing on our own life stories and experiences as inspiration. What makes a great character? What is narrative structure? And how do we take our audience on an unforgettable journey? The workshops will be led by a professional writer and director from the National Theatre. They will be creative, practical, thought-provoking, sociable and – most importantly – fun! This is a fantastic chance to learn new skills, explore new ideas, debate new opinions and meet new people.
Following the workshops, you will then have the chance to rehearse and perform a brand new play at the National Theatre next Summer, working alongside some of the country’s leading professional actors and a company of up to two hundred community performers from all over London. The show will be an epic celebration of the city, bringing together an enormous, diverse group of people from all walks of life to create an extraordinary piece of theatre on one of the oldest, biggest stages in London.
If you’re keen and would like to know more, come along to one of our taster workshops where you can meet the team and have a go:
Wednesday 8 November and Wednesday 22 November between 7-9pm.
