Playwrights' Workshop *Online*

You get an idea for a play. Now, how do you build it into a narrative? Moments grow into scenes. The movement of scenes becomes a language in itself. Story is secondary to something more elusive: a dramatic world recognizable from our lives. We are here to support you, whether you’re just beginning or writing a full-length play. We will read work, discuss problems, and use exercises to trigger observation and imagination. Instructor: Peter Littlefield
