From working with a writer and director to fundraising and venue negotiations, they will offer two different perspectives on how to make your show happen while also offering advice for writers and directors who want to find a producer to help them put on their work. With experience between them of working both within a venue and independently, this masterclass is your chance to understand how different producing models work.
This masterclass welcomes producers, directors, writers, actors and anyone interested in how small-scale fringe theatre is made. You could have a show that you want to see produced or you could simply be an audience member keen to learn more about the way shows get made.
The masterclass is £15 and participants are welcome to also book £10 tickets for that day’s 3pm matinee of I'D RATHER GOYA ROBBED ME OF MY SLEEP THAN SOME OTHER ARSEHOLE.
