Tom Murray: The Impossible Choice
Plays are driven by the choices a character makes.
A workshop that looks at dialogue, dramatic imagery and setting to bring out the internal tension of character, and how they work together to drive the story towards the impossible choice.
Suitable for both the beginner and more experience writer.
What drives the decision of a character if faced with two choices, either means they lose as well as win?! The drama is not only about the to and fro between making the choice but why, when it comes down to it, one is made over the other? What does it reveal about them?
