Essex’s MA Scriptwriting (Theatre and Digital Media) is designed for aspiring scriptwriters who want to learn with professional and award-winning dramatists. On this course, each student will produce a varied portfolio of dramatic works, culminating in a full-length original play, which will enable him/her to hone and develop his/her own unique voice. This course focuses on the range of possibilities that exist for contemporary drama, with an emphasis on British and Irish drama, and students will also explore topics including: The principles of dramatic structure and scene construction (dialogue, the construction of plot, the development of character, development of themes, and the structure of scenes); Techniques for working as a playwright with youth and community groups; The origins and possibilities of poetic theatre and verse drama; Options for poetic practice or novel-writing; Radio drama. At the end of the course, student’s work will be rehearsed and given a public performance in the Lakeside Theatre at Essex’s Colchester Campus. The dissertation gives student the chance to write a full-length play with one-to-one supervision from an award-winning playwright tutor.
