We’re thrilled to share two exciting events coming up with our Plymouth Young City Laureate Mimi Jones. Both events are Pay What You Can and you are welcome to book a free ticket if it would make it more accessible for you.

Book your place for both events here.

Monday 15th April, 5-8:30pm – Playwriting Workshop & Open Mic with Jon Nash & Mimi Jones @Intercom Trust, Plymouth

Want to make a scene? Create some drama? Tell a story that needs to be live on stage?
Facilitated by local Plymouth writers Jon Nash and Plymouth Young City Laureate Mimi Jones, this fun, practical workshop will give you the tools to tell your story on stage or audio and also think about the LGBTQ stories we want and need to tell in 2024.
Bring something to write with and get ready to get stuck in with writing tasks, exercises and examples of scripts to kickstart your new play.

The workshop will be followed by an Open Mic sharing.

Come along and get creative!
