Introduction to Playwriting

Introductory | Students will be introduced to playwriting; the main mechanics, concepts and theory behind a dramatic text; and the necessary tools to develop characters, conflicts, and engaging scenes for the stage. We will learn from great international playwrights (Harold Pinter, Sarah Kane, Dario Fo, Eugene Ionesco), as well as from each other through constructive feedback and active listening. The course is very practical, with engaging writing exercises, games and readings.

Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online until further notice. If there's a possibility that your class might take place in person, you will be notified in advance. Even if classes can be held in person, there will always be a hybrid option to participate via Zoom.

Classes with "Zoom" in the title will be held via Zoom even after our doors open. Classes listed as "Online" will be held on Wet Ink, our platform for asynchronous learning.

All times are listed in Pacific Time.
