Playwriting for Adults
About this course
Learn how to bring your story to paper and have it ready for the stage.
Nothing beats the intensity of actors sharing the same air as the audience. A play can be staged anywhere, from an empty space surrounded by folding chairs to a fully-lit Broadway stage, and everything in between. But the performance doesn't happen unless there is a story to tell, and that starts with a playwright. Learn to tell a story through dialogue and character connection. This course will provide writers with a space to take a story idea and bring it to life for the stage. Learn the basics of playwriting and write a short play + have a theatrical reading of it done by actors.
Get an education on stage direction and how to write it into your script, and find out what goes into producing and directing your work. Classes are designed to provide lecture, Q&A, writing, group work, as well as one-on-one time with your instructor to receive personalized feedback. Workshopping of student projects (each student presenting work throughout the 6 weeks) will also be part of the course.
Class takes a week off for Thanksgiving break on November 27th!
