Islington Community Theatre's playwrighting project - an underground collective of young writers bursting to be heard.
A space where anything and everything can be said – even if you’ve never written a word.
A chance to speak your mind, to change the world; to imagine, listen and explore.
Every week, in a secret location, we meet to stimulate and support one another in creating new writing, scripts and ideas. It’s a creative laboratory for Islington’s next generation of script writers.
WHAT IS A SPEAKEASY?
Our Speakeasies - named after secret underground venues in 1920s America - are 2 hour long writing workshops exploring all kinds of writing: scripts, spoken word, rap, character, voice, free-writing and more.
Great script-writing isn't about having good handwriting, spelling or grammar - it's about unlocking your inner voice and finding exciting stories, characters and moments. You might be someone who writes all the time, or has never written creatively before. Speakeasy exists to help you discover your imagination, find your voice and create amazing writing.
Speakeasy is a weekly workshop taking place on Fridays from 5-7pm. Participants work with professional playwriting experts and visiting playwrights, as well as each other, to develop characters, scenes and short plays.
If you're interested in getting involved, email the Speakeasy team.
