Interested in developing your playwriting skills? Learn from the best! Timothy Daly is teaching his eight-week Dramatic Studio: Advanced Playwriting Techniques starting 27 August. Here’s what some of his former students have to say.
‘Timothy Daly is one of those rare playwrights – one who can explain the art
of it! He has a musical ear for dialogue and so many wonderfully well thought out ideas and processes for how to draft and redraft work to its absolute best. I started my career with Tim as a mentor/dramaturg, and he helped me to structure and craft my first ever professional play, which then went on to a performance at the Sydney Opera House. His short play course was instrumental in my own embracing of the form. Tim has considered insights into what works in which spaces and for which audiences, and he is able to reveal this with tremendous generosity and intelligence, and with the understanding of a working and talented practitioner.’
– Suzie Miller
Suzie Miller is a multi-award winning playwright who has been in residence with Ex Machina & Robert Lepage, National Theatre London, National Theatre of Scotland and Griffin Theatre. She has won and been shortlisted for the Kit Denton Fellowship, the AWGIES, state premier’s awards, Irish Times award, and the New York Fringe Festival.
‘Timothy Daly taught me about the musicality of language, and the importance of being bold in both my ideas and vision. He taught me about the importance of redrafting and editing and the priceless benefit of being open to robust, articulate dramaturgical feedback. He taught me about the creative drive and the necessity to work as hard as you can to get your work on the page and then the stage. So basically he taught me everything anyone needs to know about being a playwright.’
