Lee Blessing: WHOSE CLIMAX IS IT, ANYWAY?
ONLINE SALES ENDED BUT SPACES STILL AVAILABLE CONTACT firstname.lastname@example.org for information!
A rare and significant opportunity to study with one of Americas most treasured dramatists Lee Blessing, who teaches an intensive, hands-on practicum investigating one of the most critical structural underpinnings of playwriting: the nature and utility of a dramatic climax; and fundamental power this choice has on the outcome of your play. Through in-class and assigned writing exercises, discussion and debate, each writer will create a ten-minute play. The intensive will offer a wide range of dramatic strategies to be utilized by students in varying ways to paint a vivid portrait about how these choices can lead to varying outcomes; Mr. Blessing will also help students extrapolate these concepts from the ten-minute form to the full length. Students will delve into a broad range of issues within the class, such as play structure, characterization, tone, and dialogue.
The class will also investigate more logistical questions, including career choices for dramatic writers, how it works in the wonderful world of productions, and the dynamics of a commission and/or other topics that arise from the class.
