We’re excited to announce that for the third year running, London Playwrights’ Blog is a partner at London Writers’ Week. As always, this means we’ll be bringing you some exciting events as part of the week! You can check out the full programme of London Writers’ Week events here.

From Stage to Screen with Freddie Machin

Led by playwright and screenwriter Freddie Machin, From Stage to Screen is a practical workshop which will explore the challenges presented in writing for these two different media. Drawing on the experience of adapting his debut stage play for screen, Freddie will lead participants through a series of exercises that will engage the visual imagination, highlight good structure, and encourage brevity in your writing. All levels welcome.

Freddie Machin is a playwright and screenwriter. Based on his play of the same title, Freddie wrote the feature film Chicken, which got its UK cinema release in May 2016. Mark Kermode included it in his best films of that year for the Guardian newspaper, and it received its network premiere on FilmFour. 

Freddie’s other plays include: The Real Estate, Candy Cansino Checks In (Italia Conti), Nailhouse (Old Red Lion), Winston on the Run (Edinburgh Fringe & UK Tour), The Revenge of Martha G. (Chichester Festival Theatre), Don’t Waste Your Bullets on the Dead (Vault Festival), Chicken (Southwark Playhouse). 

Freddie is a member of the Orange Tree Theatre Writers Collective 2018, and teaches writing for both stage and screen at City Academy. www.freddiemachin.com www.chickenthefilm.com @Freddie_Machin
