Teaching, Workshops and Script Consultancy

I teach writing comedy and screenwriting. I've run masterclasses and taught courses, including at Central School of Speech and Drama, London Film Academy and The Arvon Foundation. If you run courses at a drama school or university and want me to teach comedy writing or screenwriting feel free to message me.


I also run comedy workshops with my brother, the director and GSA Teaching Fellow Dominic Burdess as The Funny Farm. These can be run on Zoom. If you are a performer or writer who is interested in our workshops feel free to get in touch directly.

I also offer script consultancy to individuals, sometimes with Kay Stonham of the Female Pilot Club. If you'd like me to read your script and help you make it better do get in touch. 

"My session with Abigail was absolutely invaluable.  She talked me through structure and story in a way that was completely accessible, informed and ultimately made the script elevated to a new level. She is an expert in this field and so to be able to pick her brains felt like a gift.  She had read the script and, more importantly, invested in it, so every note she gave was pertinent.  I would recommend her to others in a heartbeat."
