Hello you. I’m Kathryn Ash and I’m a theatre dramaturg, writer and actor, practising all those fun skills since 1990. Originally I longed to be an actor. And I still do occasionally tread the boards.
But what I really love more than any other aspect of theatre is writing, making stories, and helping other people make their stories work the way they want them to work. I’ve written a lot of plays, and got some traction, and won some awards, and scholarships and publications. I adore story, and will never stop trying to craft plays.
I started this particular blog to talk about dramaturgy, the subtle art of helping others find their stories. I notice that not a lot of people know what dramaturgy is, and there is not a great deal about it online compared to other artform discussions. So there heaps to say, and I hope some of it is helpful to you in your own writing journey.
