The MA in Playwriting and Adaptation: Stage, Screen and Beyond offers emerging and established writers the opportunity to hone their writing craft for a range of performance settings and production contexts. Students will engage in dramaturgical thinking and research within script development and produce scripts for a range of media. Students are encouraged to improve their writing craft while exploring, researching and developing a variety of original plays/scripts and adaptations for a range of performance settings and production contexts from stage, screen, and radio performance to live performance including site-specific, museum and immersive performance, gaming and other commercial and non-traditional contexts. Starting from the premise that writing for performance requires dramaturgical research, the course also interrogates dramaturgical thinking in relation to script development. The programme is aimed at emerging writers interested in writing in a performance-based context as well as more established writers wishing to hone their skills. By the end of the course, each student will have completed a full-length play/script and several short plays/scripts for a range of media.
