New term - new course and more...

A new group of writers start their course later this month, while last year's group continue into a second year. I talk about the course in an article on Lane's List which you can read here.

In other news, Hannah and Hanna in Dreamland will be part of the Making Waves Showcase in Margate and Unicorns, Almost returns from the Edinburgh Festival with five star reviews.


"John is a rare combination of an outstandingly creative theatre artist and a truly transformative teacher."

The John Retallack Playwriting Course is based in central Oxford. 

It is a new professional course that covers every aspect of writing a play and asks a selected group of promising writers to write three plays, starting with a 15 minute play in the first term and moving towards a full-length play in the third.

 The UK playwright's website, Lane's List, has interviewed John about the playwriting course. Lots of information of interest to developing playwrights of all ages.
