Ghost story writing workshop: October 23, 10am-4pm. We are bringing Adam Robinson, playwright of our current production, all the way from the UK to guide you through a series of thrilling exercises, inspiring activities, and in-depth discussion and sharing as a way to begin your own gothic masterpiece! During the session, Adam will dive into the vital elements and structure of great ghost stories, bold ways of creating flesh-crawling atmosphere, and unlocking the secrets of crafting vengeful spirit characters.
Forum with the playwright: October 24, 4pm-5pm. Adam Robinson, along with a panel of the cast, will be speaking about this show and about his wildly successful body of work.
Adam Robinson is a sought-after playwright in the UK and the response from his sell-out shows is proof that his plays, especially his ghost stories, are wildly popular. His short film “The Split” was considered for a BAFTA award nomination.
