In this joint fundraiser for Dorchester Arts and Dorchester Community Plays Association playwrights Stephanie Dale and David Edgar will demonstrate how drama shares many of the elements and structures of poetry.
Illustrating the evening, local actors will read from classical, contemporary and community plays and David and Stephanie will show how plays communicate meaning by drawing unexpected connections between different elements.
Stephanie Dale writes for stage, radio and large-scale theatre and is currently writing Spinning the Moon, the 2018 Dorchester Community Play. David Edgar is one of Britain’s leading playwrights who has written extensively for The National Theatre, The Royal Shakespeare Theatre and many others.
Followed by a Q&A with the authors and actors.
