About your teacher:

isabel sensier

Isabel studied Theatre Arts at Middlesex University, before working in several on and off-West End productions in a costume capacity, then taking part on the Royal Court Young Writers Programme in 2013. 

She relocated to her home town, Brighton, and founded Squall + Frenzy in 2014. Since it was founded, the company has staged a series of new plays and experimental adaptations of classic texts, for which they have enjoyed four star reviews, sold-out performances, and were shortlisted for the New Writing South Best New Play award at Brighton Fringe 2015. 

More recently, Isabel's adaptation of Ubu Roi has seen sellout shows in Brighton & Hove and was performed at the Dreams Before Dawn festival in Paris in the summer.

Have you ever wanted to write a play? Writing your own play is an exciting process, but it can also be a very challenging one. The structure of a play is so different to every other writing style, but a well-written play is a thing of absolute beauty.
