Take part in a free two-part writing workshop at The Box this Easter in celebration of our much-loved painting, 'A Fish Sale on a Cornish Beach' by Stanhope Forbes.

Help us create a sound piece to capture the wonder of this cherished painting. Through the workshop you'll write a short monologue and bring to life the weather-beaten fisherman in their sou’wester hats and smocks. Help tell the story of the hardworking fisherwomen in their shawls and traditional ‘towser’ aprons with a fleet of Cornish Luggers in the background.

The workshops will be led by renowned Playwright and Plymouth Laureate of Words, Laura Horton.

Over the two 90-minute sessions, Laura will guide you through the different stages of idea generation, playwriting techniques and editing with the aim that everyone will pen a 2-5 minute monologue.

There will also be an option to record the monologues as a legacy from the workshops, for visitors to listen to complete with sound effects of lapping waves and seagulls next to the painting.

Free. Advance booking is essential via our online shop.
