About

Are you interested in learning the craft of scriptwriting and enhancing your creative skills by exploring other forms including poetry, prose fiction, life writing and experimental writing? This is the course for you!

As well as doing lots of practical work, you'll also be introduced to a range of performance theories which you can apply to your practice as playwrights, performers, directors or researchers.

We have a strong link with Kingston's Rose Theatre - the largest producing theatre in south-west London. Drama students benefit from the resources and expertise of a professional theatre and gain important industry awareness. Regular classes are held in The Rose Studio, and occasional masterclasses on the main stage.
