JMK Tobacco Factory – ‘Adapting Non Theatrical Texts’ Workshop on 7th Jan

JMK Tobacco Factory Theatres present a workshop on Adapting Non Theatrical Texts for The Stage, led by JMK Director Practitioner Nik Partridge.

Monday 7th January, 1 - 3pm

This two hour workshop will focus on the process of adaptation and look at how new productions of non-theatrical texts can be adapted and developed for the stage. It will be based around Nik's production of The Borrowers which is currently playing at Tobacco Factory Theatres, looking at the process of development that the show underwent. The workshop will consider what the challenges and opportunities of adaptation for the stage are, as well as what possibilities can exist through telling a story in a theatrical setting. 

Nik is a Bristol based director, who has worked extensively within the South-West. He has collaborated and produced work with organisations like Mayfest, Travelling Light, Bristol Old Vic, the egg, Strike-A-Light, Theatre Royal Plymouth and Tobacco Factory Theatres. Further afield he has made work for the Royal Court, Traverse, Barbican and Galway International Arts Festival.

He was Director-in-Residence at Tobacco Factory Theatres for 2014-15 and Staff Director at Theatre Royal Plymouth from 2016-2018. He is currently a JMK Director Practitioner for the South-West region.
