Mercury Monday Masterclass: With Kenny Emson
Join our weekly Mercury Masterclasses, run by creative professionals from across the industry, offering you a chance to engage, learn and network with fellow theatre and arts enthusiasts.
Each week a different course leader will lead a virtual session via the Zoom video conferencing app, delving into their specialist subject to share their knowledge and skills with an online audience for FREE.
Our first masterclass will be led by BAFTA nominated and award-winning Essex born playwright Kenny Emson exploring writing for live audiences and trends in modern theatre.
The masterclass is for any aspiring writer wanting to sharpen their skills and find out more about Kenny’s ten years working as a professional writer.
This session will include writing exercises, how to develop characters, tips for monologues and will finish with a Q&A.
No experience needed.
