This week marked the launch of this year’s New Views playwriting programme, run by the National Theatre. Here, Coco, V, and Elise, VI, discuss the benefits of this initiative:
Although it has just started the New Views programme has already taught us all so much; between non-stop writing exercises, games and play analysis, it is so different to any other writing we have done before. After a few weeks of preparation, we will begin our eventual goal of writing a one act play. Groups get to meet with a National Theatre playwright and receive feedback as their plays progress. New Views is such an exciting and unique experience, offering a great opportunity to expand your writing style, not to mention the chance to have your own script performed professionally. It is a perfect example of all the inspiring extra-curriculars which are still going ahead, and has great promise for the weeks to come. Although unfortunately this year due to Covid-19 restrictions the V and the VI had to have separate meetings, it was nevertheless great to be back in New Views and begin a new year of playwriting!
