Creating Characters

with Sabrina Mafouz


Sabrina Mahfouz leads a discussion on creating characters specifically for stage, encouraging thinking outside of the 'know your character inside out' process that has been normalised in contemporary British theatre. There will also be a focus on fictionalising yourself as a character. Exercises will follow the discussion to try and spark ideas for new plays by creating specific, yet 'unfilled in' characters.


Sabrina Mahfouz is a writer and performer. Her most recent theatre show was A History of Water in the Middle East (Royal Court, 2019).

Her most recent publications as editor include Smashing It: Working Class Artists on Life, Art and Making it Happen(Saqi, 2019) and Poems From a Green and Blue Planet (Hachette, 2019).

She is a resident writer at Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre and at the TV and film company, House Productions.
