ITD Masterclass at POWER PLAYS Writing Festival 2024

25th March 2024 by Lauren Randall

We’re delighted to be a part of the exciting POWER PLAYS Writing Festival 2024 at The Old Electric, Blackpool.

Join us at The OE on May 25 as our Co-Artistic Director Andrew Quick leads a masterclass on ‘The Art of Adaptation’, sharing the processes and principles that guide our creative choices in adapting classic texts. Participants will have the chance to practically explore some of the questions and decisions necessary to adapt an existing narrative of their choice and develop an original treatment for the stage.

For more information about the masterclass and to book tickets, please visit The Art of Adaptation.

The POWER PLAYS Writing Festival is a vibrant line-up of events, talks, and shows designed to ignite creativity and inspire new perspectives. It aims to support new writing for the stage, explore original perspectives on the region, and establish The OE as Blackpool’s home of new writing. With 48 exciting events all connected with new writing, the literary festival line-up will also include visiting artist Q&As, thrilling new live productions, a pioneering primary schools programme, peer to peer projects and keynote masterclass sessions.

Other artists and writers involved include Krishna Isthna (Sex Education screenwriter and performance artist), multi-award-winning playwright Simon Stephens (Punk Rock, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time), theatre-maker and director Victoria Firth, local writer Lauren-Nicole Mayes and talented new writer-in-residence for The Old Electric, Martha Pailing.
