Learn the basics of playwriting through exploring dramatic structure, creating compelling stories and characters, sharpening dialogue, and discovering the vast potential of live theatre. In this class, students will create original work as well as reinterpret existing material through fun weekly writing exercises.

Why I Teach: “I learn so much in every class I teach, even if it’s curriculum I’ve taught before.”
Favorite Exercise We Do in Class: “We will write monologues in which a character seems to be speaking about one thing, while really speaking about something deeper, exploring how we can imbue seemingly neutral elements with active potential.”
