This event has passed.

Bookings for Access First include a free ticket to the audio described performance of The Nutcracker on Sat 26 Nov at 2.30pm, and the associated Insight Talk beforehand at 12.15pm.

In partnership with Vision Norfolk, Norwich Theatre invites you to join us from September to November for a series of scriptwriting workshops that will see you create your own play. Delivered by a Royal Shakespeare Company actor and writer, and suited to those with visual impairments, we hope that these creative sessions will offer a safe space to connect with others through playwriting and storytelling, helping you to develop a script to be proud of.

The programme will explore embedding audio description within the body of a script, encouraging the notion that accessibility should be rooted within the theatre-making process from the very first steps.

This programme is specifically for adults who have visual impairments – and will be taking place at Vision Norfolk.
There is no need to have prior experience of scriptwriting – the workshops will guide you through the process, from finding inspiration to spark an initial idea, through to character development and more.

Now is the time to tell your story.

This programme is part of our latest project in partnership with the Royal Shakespeare Company, 37 Plays; a new national playwriting project, which hopes to seek the stories of our times – the comedies, the tragedies and the untold histories. 37 plays will be chosen by a national reading panel and subsequently performed script-in-hand across the UK and online in autumn 2023. Now is the time to tell your story.
