Informal Upright

A Theatre Collective


The conversation with our communities never ends, so at Informal Upright we are always working on something. Here are just a few things we're anxious to share.

Playwriting Intensive

December 23rd & 27th - 31st. (Six sessions)

12noon - 1pm : Shared free-writing time. 
1 - 3pm : Playwriting Intensive.

Informal Upright, in Association with JM Drama, are cohosting a short Playwriting Intensive at the Registry Theatre.

Award-winning playwright, Ciarán Myers, is a graduate of MFA Writing for Stage and Broadcast Media at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama. He has had work performed in Edinburgh, London, and Kitchener to the rave of 4 and 5 -STAR reviews. Ciarán wants to share the knowledge and skills gained in his MFA with his local community--that's you! 

Thanks to JM Drama, Informal Upright is able to feed this course directly into the Registry Theatre's annual Playground Festival (formerly the ACTOne Festival). In partnership with Informal Upright, JM Drama will fish pieces that have grown through this intensive to participate in the Festival. 

Participants are asked to commit to all six days of the intensive for a $60 fee* ($10/day). 

* If you are unable to attend this course because of financial barriers, please contact Ciarán privately. He understands first-hand. We wish for this course to be accessible to all. ciaranmyers1 [at]
