The Breakup Monologues Workshops
Friday 17 November
In a nutshell
A free, introductory workshop exploring comedy and pathos with author and comedian Rosie Wilby
Award-winning comedian Rosie Wilby explores the use of comedy writing techniques to create performance pieces that navigate through life's more challenging personal events. Does tragedy plus time always make for comedy? How much time is enough time? She also leads a discussion on our responsibility towards the other people involved in a story when writing about real life events..
This informal pre-show workshop is part of Queer'Say Revolution Edition: The Breakup Monologues. Participants are welcome to stay on for the event featuring Rosie Wilby, Elf Lyons, VG Lee and Sarah Keyworth
Rosie Wilby has appeared many times on Radio 4 and at several major, international festivals. Her first book Is Monogamy Dead? is shortlisted for the Diva Literary Awards and follows a TEDx talk of the same name. Her solo show The Conscious Uncoupling was commissioned by London Southbank Festival of Love 2016 and was shortlisted for Funny Women Best Show 2016.
