The workshop will focus on the mechanics of the short play, and what makes it a unique and viable theatrical form that lends itself to more experimentation than the long play format. Through in-class writing assignments, reading of examples of successful ten-minute plays and discussions that highlight aspects of craft such as character as action, stakes, obstacles and onstage visuals, writers will leave the workshop with ideas for writing their own ten-minute plays and where to market their completed projects.
Open to all levels.
Minimum Class size: 5
