Student Profile(s)

Katherine Soper, Graduated 2014, her play Wish List, won the Bruntwood Prize and premiered at the Royal Exchange Theatre before transferring to the Royal Court.

It’s safe to say that without Central’s support I would never have written Wish List. Having that year gave me the space to experiment with my writing without feeling exposed, and helped me be disciplined about elements like plot structure and dramatic action that I’d previously found difficult to navigate on my own.
