Filter News

Deadline: Thursday, August 1, 2019

A two day intensive course offering one-to-one play writing sessions.

Come to the Scottish Highlands, and take time to concentrate on your play with guidance from an experienced playwright.


  • talking to someone about your play can help
  • talking to someone who has written several plays themselves can help more
  • talking to someone who has had their plays produced professionally can help even more
  • talking to someone who has worked in theatre since 1986 and has run their own production company and been involved in every aspect of theatrical production and who has specialised in writing for the last 17 years can really, really help.

So why not sign up for a weekend of intensive play writing with Dave Smith, Director of Right Lines Productions.

Problems with the plot? Characters not interesting enough? Unspeakable dialogue? Or just plain stuck? Let's spend the weekend together getting your play into shape.

Dave Smith has been a playwright since 2000 and is half of the well-established Right Lines writing partnership.

Over the weekend there will be 6 x 2-hour sessions jointly discussing and working on your play in between these there will be time for your own writing/re-writing.

Accommodation is available in Tain. Air BnB, B n B and Hotels.

Costs- you pay for your own accommodation and travel. 

  • the weekend course fee -£160. (this price will increase to £200 in August)
