WRITING IN DARK TIMES: RESISTANCE AND THE 10-MINUTE PLAY
Writing in Dark Times: Resistance and The 10-Minute Play [a six-session workshop in short drama, Monday nights, May 8, 15, 22, June 5, 12, 19]

Writers deal with resistance on a regular basis, making diving into our work problematic in the best of times, but in the dark times, we must learn to resist by pushing through our stumbling blocks to get the writing to happen!  Theatre is our most social art, and there are calls far and wide for short plays that can address these dark times.  Writing 10-minute plays is a way to use the 3-dimensional, social world to express our truths whether they are political, personal or both.  

It may be easy for some of us to march in the streets, but what happens when we face the empty page with all of our passions reawakened?  How can we put our frustrations, rage, fears and despair to good use in our writing?  Through in-class exercises that free us from our own resistance, and optional homework assignments to keep our writing flowing, we will find better access to our creativity and spontaneity to write fun, fast, ferocious 10-minute plays -- you won't write just one!  

Individuals with all levels of writing experience and/or theatre experience are welcome.  Professional actors will read some of the plays during the final class.  

Emma Goldman-Sherman's work includes Wombshot, Perfect Women (Jane Chambers Award), and Sex & the Circus developed/produced at Culture Project, the New Ohio, E.S.T.'s LA Project, the Women's Project, Manhattan Theatre Source, Clemente Soto Velez, OAS, and many others. In April 2017 her work was featured at Dixon Place. Counting in Sha'ab was part of the ReOrient Festival of plays about the Middle East produced by Golden Thread. She was named a Risky Playwright by Cutting Ball Theatre two years in a row for Why Birds Fly and Abraham's Daughters which was recently presented as part of The Lady Liberty Festival at Urban Stages and at Intersections International. She earned her MFA from the University of Iowa where she studied theatre, poetry, and composition. A member of the Dramatists Guild, and of New York Writers Workshop, Emma is the Resident Dramaturg for the 29th Street Playwrights Collective. She runs the Write Now Workshop.
