Taking inspiration from London’s Royal Court Young Writer’s programme, TRB Young Writers is all about writing for performance. Working with professional playwright Dinos Aristidou, new and aspiring playwrights, performance poets, site responsive writers or anyone with a story to tell will be supported to find their style, shape their voice and find the best form to say what they want to say to the world.

At the end of the course your words will be brought to life in a rehearsed reading with professional actors and director, in front of an audience in one of the oldest and most beautiful theatres in the country!

TRB Young Writers is for 16 – 25 year olds who are passionate about writing for performance.
