Meet the Writer - Laura Lomas

Friday 3 May, 5pm - 7pm

Writer of Connections play Chaos, Laura Lomas (playwright and screenwriter), will be running a two-hour workshop on character and monologue writing before the evening's performance. A perfect opportunity to meet Laura and get some first-hand tips on how to craft interesting and dynamic characters, before seeing the show. Laura has written numerous plays for various venues across the UK and also writes for radio and TV. 

See Chaos performed by Tiptoe School of Performing Arts on Thursday 2 May or by The Young Rep Acting School after this workshop (for half price) at 7:30pm


A girl is locked in a room. A boy brings another boy flowers. A girl has tied herself to a railing. A boy doesn’t know who he is. A girl worries about impending catastrophe. A woman jumps in front of a train. A boy’s heart falls out his chest. A butterfly has a broken wing.

Chaos is a symphony of dislocated and interconnected scenes. A series of characters search for meaning in a complicated and unstable world. Bouncing through physics, the cosmos, love and violence, they find order in the disorder of each other.

Laura Lomas – Why I Wrote this Play:

‘I’m interested in chaos. I think most of the time we try to impose order on our lives – we’re scared of the mess of being alive; we want to contain it, to put our hands around it. I wanted to write something that embraced chaos, that celebrated it, in all its strange unpredictable energy, in all its trouble, and its beauty. I didn’t want it to always make sense, but I did want it to feel very alive – all the ways I remember feeling as a teenager.’
