Script Writing for Theatre

A new look to the SJT writing class ‘Write Stuff’.

Led by Suzy Graham- Adriani (Writer, Editor, Director)

This new class will be 10 sessions long. During the ten weeks you will learn skills and techniques to create a new piece of writing and by the end of the course, on week 10, you will have completed a short play ready to be submitted for a public rehearsed reading in First Draft at the SJT in March 2020. After the 10 week session you will have the option to book individual surgeries of your submitted script with a director and actors, to further develop your script (more details to follow).

We also encourage local writers to submit finished full length plays to be considered for our Second Stage readings later in 2020.

Tuesdays, 6-8pm

Session dates:

Autumn Term starts: 24 September
Half Term (no class): 29 October
Term ends: 3 December


Suzy Graham-Adriani is best known for creating the Connections Programme for the National Theatre.  She was responsible for commissioning and developing the first hundred plays and musicals from writers such as Bryony Lavery, Mark Ravenhill, Dennis Kelly, Alan Ayckbourn and Simon Armitage. Each year there were new writing festivals in regional theatres throughout the UK  before the culminating festival of all ten or more new works at the National each July which Suzy directed. All of the plays were published by Faber in volumes she edited and she helped set up the programme in other countries so the programme became international. While at the National she directed the number one tour of Philip Ridley’s Sparkleshark. Since becoming a freelance theatre practitioner she has continued to direct new works and most recently wrote a play for the inclusive theatre company Razed Roof.
