Playwriting with Carol Wolf
Have you ever wanted to write a play? This 2-part workshop is designed to teach beginning, and some intermediate and advanced, playwriting techniques through intense lecture, demonstration, experimentation and discussion.
Saturday, February 23rd 10:00 a.m. - noon
Sunday, February 24th 1-4pm
Your ticket covers both days.
Students will test their beginning playwriting techniques by writing a 3-5 page play between sessions. In the second session on Sunday, we will do staged readings of the plays, and use them as the starting point to discuss intermediate and advanced playwriting techniques.
At the conclusion of the workshop, students will be prepared to write additional, longer plays that are producible and will work in the theater. They will have a skill set for trouble-shooting their work, and a series of techniques they can depend on to seize and sustain the audience's attention.
In addition, students will have a new insight into how plays work, when they are working, and what to look for when they are not, in their own plays as well as others', and by extension, films, television, books and other storytelling media as well.
