Tackling how to write and structure plays, the workshops will cover plot, character themes, scenes and devices. There may be talks from guest speakers and will include time for you to work on your own ideas and to share them with the group. 

These workshops are appropriate for all writing abilities and we actively encourage participants from all backgrounds.

If you have a story to tell but aren't sure how to do it then these sessions are for you.

  • Zoe Lewis

    Zoe Lewis is one of Wilton's Associates. Her first play, Loyalties, was written at the tender age of fifteen and won the North West Young Playwright Award in 1986. The following year, she won the same award for In Too Deep but the play was deemed too controversial to stage. A Levels, a history degree from Cambridge and a stint living in New York working for the Red Hot Aids Charitable Trust followed. Whilst in New York, Zoe worked on documentaries as well as in the music business, producing and coordinating multi-artist albums, working with artists including Herbie Hancock, Stevie Wonder and Madonna. After returning to London at the age of 25, she staged her play Paradise Syndrome on the London Fringe to considerable acclaim. This was followed by Glastonbury which toured the UK in 2002 in a big top tent, directed by Keith Allen and with a set designed by Damien Hirst; the production was the subject of BBC3 documentary Mud, Sweat And Tears.    

    In 2009, Sadie Frost starred as 14 year-old Madonna-obsessed Mancunian Lesley in Zoe’s Touched… For the Very First Time at Trafalgar Studios. This year Zoe Lewis and Sadie Frost came to Wilton's for the first time with Britten in Brooklyn"a slight of quirky, funny writing with strong performances and clever pacing" ★★★★ The Upcoming.

    As well as writing regularly for The Daily Mail and The Times, Zoe guest edits The Big Issue and has ghostwritten autobiographies for Keith Allen and Sadie Frost.
