Bedlam Theatre

Bedfest 2024


Theatre is action! In this workshop, we will discuss the importance of on-stage action. We will explore how on-stage action can inform character, reveal character motivations, and create tangible conflicts in a scene.

We will conduct a writing exercise together, and participants will be able to have their work read aloud and receive feedback from their peers.
