Free writing and drama workshops in Newhaven

THE ORGANISER of a community theatre project is staging free writing and drama workshops which are open to the public.

The Port, the Beast and the Traveller will be the play staged in Newhaven next summer by Inroads Productions.

It was written by professional playwright Sara Clifford and will culminate in a performance in July 2012.

A drama workshop will take place on Wednesday March 23, while a writing workshop will be on Thursday March 24.

There will also be a writing session on March 16 and a drama session on March 17.

All sessions run from 6.30pm to 8pm at the Hillcrest Centre in Hillcrest Road.

Participants will be able to explore the themes collected in the research phase through creative writing and drama, while contributing to the development of the script.

There will be a family art workshop day on Saturday April 2 from 11am to 3pm.

The play is being supported by Newhaven Town Council and the East Sussex Arts Partnership.
