Playwriting: Creating Big, Beautiful Worlds

All Levels | Build the world of your play by establishing the rules of your world, interrogating theatricality, creating compelling characters, and identifying what drives you to share this story with an audience. Each week, we’ll read and discuss one opening scene by a contemporary playwright, exploring how each artist establishes and builds their world in the first few pages of the play. Writing will include generative exercises and weekly assignments.

Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online-either through Zoom or through Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform-through Spring quarter 2021.

All times are listed in Pacific Time.
