In this workshop, Nigel Planer will cover all aspects of writing comedy, from creating funny characters, to structure, plotting, word order and dialogue. Everything in fact, except jokes. He says he’s a bit crap at them. Sally Phillips will make a guest appearance, going over any finer points he may have missed, such as how NOT to pitch and write a screenplay.
The venue is Casa Ana, the writers’ retreat in the Alpujarras mountains of Andalucia, Spain. The 400-year-old house has rooms with stunning views, comfy beds, great meals, a Moorish garden for thinking in, and south-facing terraces for soaking up the sun.
Dates: 30th July – 6th August
