'Honestly, this really happened to me' – Monologue Workshop with Hellie Turner

Tuesday August 6 - Tuesday September 17
18:00 - 20:00

Highly experienced WA playwright Hellie Turner invites you to engage with her in a lively 7 week workshop, designed to assist you to construct & write a dramatic monologue centred on a ‘defining event or issue’ from your life story.

In order to develop an engaging dramatic monologue the writer needs to undertake certain explorations. To this end, participants will engage in a range of dynamic writing exercises and related discussion.

At the culmination of the workshop these monologues will be ‘read’ for an audience by professional actors.

Tuesday 6th August 6-8pm
Tuesday 13th August 6-8pm
Tuesday 20th August 6-8pm
Tuesday 27th August 6-8pm
