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 will use theater to craft powerful narratives. You will start with ideas about social justice and education; learn about story structures; go through a scaffolded process to write your first script; work with professional actors to develop character/dialogue; practice giving/receiving feedback; and prepare for a performance of your play by the company of actors.
