Thu 3 January 2013

Our spring season of Soho Young Company workshops kicks off next Saturday 12 January!

Launched in 2011, Soho Young Company provides opportunities to meet new people, have a laugh and test yourself. Soho Young Company brings people together by interest to help learn from writers, comedians and performers who have been there and done that!

WRITERSGROUP (12-17s)
Soho has an incredible tradition for developing the work of new writers.

Taking place weekly at Soho Theatre on Saturdays during term time, between 11am and 12.30pm you get to work with some of the most creative and talented new writing professionals in London. You’ll have the opportunity to develop your own work from monologues and sketches to short plays and spoken word, while meeting new people and trying new experiences.

Participants also have the opportunity to submit work to a public scratch performance at the end of each term.
