Plays for Poets: Writing alongside Samuel Beckett and Carlos Sirah [Deborah Woodard]
All Levels | We’ll read Beckett’s short experimental plays and Sirah’s debut collection, which moves between dialogue and poetry, in order to draw inspiration for our own theater of ideas (whether in play, prose or verse format, or hybrid form). We’ll learn about setting as character and dramatic arc to give our work more urgency and verve. Weekly writing prompts.
Required texts: Samuel Beckett, The Collected Shorter Plays and Carlos Sirah, The High Alive: An Epic Hoodoo Diptych.
