Are you ready to write your own story? Or does dialogue and plot bog you down? This weekend, learn all about putting together — and refining — a script for the stage.

Australian playwright Alex Broun, the founder of Short+Sweet Dubai, is running a workshop on August 16-18 at The Junction that will help you create and execute a 10-minute play. The bonus: you’ll see your tale come to life on stage on day number three – your family and/or friends in tow.

Broun has received praise for this course, which he has run all over the world including in Australia, New Zealand, India, Singapore, Malaysia, the UK and the UAE.

Admission to the Short+Sweet Dubai playwriting weekend with Alex Broun is Dh1,100; Dh750 for students.
