Cheryl Martin: Their Lives in Your Hands

Cheryl Martin
Writer, Director, Performer 

Co-Artistic Director of Black Gold Arts

Their Lives in Your Hands – there’s more to writing taken from real people’s lives than verbatim or word-for-word approaches.

This workshop will explore ways to interview and how to take care of the people who allow you to use their stories and how to transform those into effective drama whilst staying true and respectful to your sources.


Dibby’s Pick and Mix is a series of online workshops delivered by a diverse group of LGBTQ+ playmakers and writers.

The workshops are for anyone interested in learning more about playwriting and making processes.

You don’t need to identify as LGBTQ+ to attend, but the workshops will be LGBTQ+ inclusive spaces and may focus on LGBTQ+ identities and stories.
