Slip into someone else's voice, take a walk in their shoes, deepen the conflict, complicate the joy and explore the most lifelike of the arts. In this studio class, students engage in the time-honored practice of examining character,action and consequence by recreating them for the stage. In-class activities and prompts get juices flowing for new and "used" playwrights alike,encouraging them to turn memories, experiences and curiosities into dramatic action and compelling characters. Outside writing is not required but encouraged. Willing students will have their work read aloud, brought to life,and discussed by the class. It's always fun.
