October 14th | Baycourt Community and Arts Centre, Tauranga, Bay of Plenty
see more dates...

One of New Zealand's most successful playwrights Roger Hall will be holding an intensive two-hour workshop teaching you almost everything you want to know about playwriting.

“What I describe is not necessarily the way everyone should write a play; it’s the way I write plays. And it seems to have worked for 40 years,” explains Roger.

Although primarily for playwrights (or would-be playwrights), a lot of what will be covered is useful for fiction writers.

Topics include:
- Dialogue
- “What sort of play should I write?”
- Characterisation
- Time and Place
- Plots and sub-plots
- Exposition
- Holding the Audience
- Structure
- Working Methods

A prolific and successful playwright, Roger Hall QNZM QSO has consistently written for the stage, alongside scriptwriting for film and television. His writing is known for its comedy, political and social purpose, and underlying pathos. His plays have toured widely and have been performed at international venues.

Roger Hall has been honoured with numerous awards and titles for his contribution to performing arts, including a New Zealand 1990 Commemoration Medal, a Scroll of Honour from the Variety Artists Club of New Zealand, and the 2015 Prime Minister's Award for Literary Achievement.
