“In truth, theater is also fiction, is also poetry, is also painting, is also dance. [..] All people are artists. All people have stories to tell.” - Paula Vogel

This workshop is designed for the beginner or intermediate playwright who is willing to set aside their previous notions of writing for the stage and start fresh—from scratch. Great as both a beginner or refresher course to learn, develop, and implement the basic tools for writing quality original narrative stories for the stage. This workshop environment will encourage you to get your ideas on the page to produce a first draft.

Important Things to Note:

  • There are a total of four sessions (schedule above)
  • Payment plans are available as needed, please contact H. Adam to discuss
  • A similar class will be offered in the Spring (Different instructor, Online Only, Dates TBA)
