In this class, participants will be supported through exercises and personal reflection to experiment with playwriting as a form. We will explore playwrights across cultures and times to see how they approached structure, character, theme and voice in ways that are unique. We will utilize poetry, memoir, and fiction as inspiration for approaching the playwriting genre. No prior playwriting experience needed.

Wednesday, June 3rd's class is from 6:30-8:30 p.m. and Saturday, June 13th's class is from 1-4 p.m.

The second half of Saturday's class (2:30-4 p.m.) will be spent workshopping. Students may share up to 3 pages they would like workshopped.
