24-Hour Playwriting Challenge

24-Hour Playwriting Challenge

The title says it all: you will write a play in a day. In this hands-on session designed for folks who have never written a play, we'll use theater to craft powerful narratives. You'll start with ideas about social justice/education; learn story structures; go through a scaffolded process to write your script; work with professional actors to develop characters; practice giving/receiving feedback; and prepare for a performance of your play by the company of actors on Tuesday from 12:30pm - 1:30pm.
