Playwriting Techniques in Solo Performance


This class is for people who lean toward performing and writing. Most of us have stories to tell, but what makes a personal story dramatic? This course challenges the solo performer to discover and craft the dramatic structure of the solo play—not just what is on the stage but what is on the page—with emphasis on imagination, characterization, story, and plot. This class meets once a week.
