Service Description

A 6 hour workshop with the internationally acclaimed Matthew Bulgo and Hayley McGee Playwright’s Toolbox’ An introduction to playwriting through a range of practical exercises, ideas and habits to plot into your working day. Generating ideas, dialogue, character, action, storytelling and structure - we’ll cover it all. Get heaps of words on the page with no pressure to share the work. This is about helping you kickstart or develop your craft. Think of this as ‘writer’s gym'. So, you’re an actor who wants to bypass the gatekeepers, share your work with growing audiences, and earn money for your art. BUT you struggle with imposter syndrome, lack of confidence and overwhelm when it comes to pitching your shows to venues, networking, finding and hiring collaborators and/or applying for funding. Internationally acclaimed, award-winning writer-performer Haley McGee —an experienced self-producer—is here to give you the brass tacks on self-producing, artist to artist. In this actor-friendly workshop the world of self-producing (aka all the annoying but necessary admin to but on your show) will be demystified. Methodically, you’ll be introduced to the various facets of self-producing theatre. Breaking it down into digestible bites, you’ll be given exercises, checklists, templates and systems created and used by a fellow artist over the last decade. Expect straightforward, no nonsense, step-by-step systems that remove all the guesswork and angst from self-producing. A must if you want to grasp the business-side of putting on a show, so you can do-it-yourself and seize control of your career.
