Rough Diamonds School of Autobiographical Theatre

Be transformed by telling your story

When our stories are received, we come home.
We guide people to craft living theatre from the raw experience of their lives; using drama, writing, improvisation and play.

About our work

Rough Diamonds School offers a space for exploring our inner and outer stories; giving body and voice permission to play and improvise. New threads of old tales emerge when we work somatically as well as with the pen. By casting light on past challenges and joys, and how they have shaped us, we free up the raw material with which to craft performances.

Courses

Regular courses in South Devon and online, for men, women and mixed groups. These vary in length from weekend workshops to closed ongoing groups over several weeks. Check the course information for upcoming courses.
