This workshop will give budding and experienced playwrights a forum in which to hear their work read aloud and have it commented on, supported, and developed. Limited to 12 participants.

This 8-week workshop is designed to get your play out of your head and onto the page. Through a combination of in-class writing exercises and reading scripts aloud, it will allow playwrights to take their scripts to the next level.

Topics covered will include:

  • Character development
  • Structure
  • Dialogue
  • Stakes
  • Re-writes.

Each week, selected participants will bring in sections of their work for feedback.

The workshop will be more fun and useful to participants who have a play that they are already working on, a few scenes, or at the very least, an outline of the idea they wish to pursue. It may be of particular interest (and complementary) to those who have taken an Introduction to Playwriting workshop. Participants can expect to come out of the workshop with a more developed script as well as tools for carrying on with their work and some ideas/suggestions of where to go and what to do with a finished draft.
