Do Drama explores the how and why of writing drama, not as an instruction manual, but as a lively conversation with one of Britain’s most prolific and successful screenwriters, Lucy Gannon. And she didn’t write her first play until she was 39.
By sharing what she has learned over three decades of writing primetime drama, she will help you to:

- Understand how the industry works so you can take your next step
Writing drama is not about education, class, or cleverness, it’s about your deep desire to tell stories, to create characters, finding the humour alongside the pathos, to delight and enthral millions.
