Improbable Fiction: Playwriting Workshops

Improbable Fiction: Playwriting Workshops

PLAYWRITING – Level I
This 4-week workshop is jam packed with brain-clearing writing exercises, inspiring prompts – examples include: fearless writing, music as inspiration, creative partnerships, different stages of theatre-making, a play’s form, developing your writer’s voice – leading to the creation of a short play (10 minutes or less)  We will conclude with a virtual performance of all the plays.

Saturdays from 12:30 to 2 pm

SESSION I:
September 19 to October 10

Performance – October 17

PLAYWRITING – Level II
Borrowing from the best playwright’s rituals, we’ll take our writing to the next level. Exercises will be aimed at generating ideas and moving them onto the page. The point is to encourage the emergence of the subconscious and weave it into our work. We’ll also explore what goes into writing a First Draft versus revising a Draft, and will conclude with a presentation featuring virtual “readings” of all the plays.
Prerequisite: Level One, a previous LADC/SYF Playwriting Workshop, or permission from the instructor.

Saturdays from 12:30 to 2 pm

SESSION II:
October 17 – November 14

Performance – November 21
