Fragment – a broken piece; a piece of writing that survives when the whole work has been lost.
This practical creative writing workshop will use fragments from ancient Greek drama to spark your creative process & create brand new pieces of work for the stage.
Using fragments of text as inspiration, you’ll collaborate to create group scratch performances and write your own monologues.
Your monologue will be made into an anthology of new works, which you’ll receive a copy of after the workshop.
No prior knowledge required. We particularly encourage participants who identify as LGBTQ+ or allies.
The free workshop is led by playwright and Pegasus Supported Artist Hannah Greenstreet and director Charlotte Vickers; supported by Classics academics from the University of Oxford, Dr Marchella Ward and Martina Astrid Rodda. Hannah’s play Andromeda uses the surviving fragments of Euripides’ play about a hero saving a princess from a sea monster to tell a modern love story between two young women. The project is funded by The Oxford Research Centre in the Humanities and Arts Council England, and supported by Pegasus Theatre, Nottingham Playhouse, and Camden People’s Theatre.
