Playwriting II: Learning the Ropes, Jan 14 - Mar 3 with Elizabeth Heffron

Jan 14 - Mar 3 // Tues 6:30 - 9:30PM (24rs)

In a play, the story and the vessel you use to tell it are inexorably connected. Change one thing and you automatically effect the other. Force a full-length story into a 10-minute structure and every short bit of it will sound trite. By exploring established works written in 5 different theatrical genres (naturalism, magic realism, absurdism, comedy, and docudrama) we will explore classic dramatic vessels and discover how modern dramatists find ways to blend these styles to match the specific needs of their stories.  Using prompts that spring from these genres, you will generate several short scenes and two wildly different one-act plays by the end of the session.

*** While we recommend taking both classes, Playwriting I is not a required prerequiste and the classes can be taken in any order.
