Have you always wanted to write for the stage, but didn’t know how to begin? Short play and monologue festivals are a regular feature of theatre companies, offering novice and experienced playwrights opportunity to see their writing performed. You’ll develop in class (or bring) a draft of (1) a ten-minute play; (2) a monologue; (3) an excerpt from a one-woman show; or (4) a short scene from a longer play. In class writing, script reading and feedback will explore theatrical structure, setup, dialogue, plot, character development, theme, theatricality, and production. We’ll discuss successful plays and monologues and tools for avoiding common pitfalls. Our Lab culminates in a performance, Wednesday evening, (for an enthusiastic audience of conference attendees), where actors will read your play on stage so you can hear your script on its feet. Our final session focuses on revision and submitting to play festivals for production. No prior playwriting experience is required.
