Playwriting: What Do You Do With an Idea? (grades 9–12)
At the end of the day, the only real way to learn how to write a play is to write one (or two or ten). And that’s what you’ll do over the six weeks of this class. Learn from a working playwright and from each other as you explore and expand upon the theme or scene or snippet of dialogue that inspires you most. Take that seed and grow it, under the watchful and caring eye of an instructor who knows how hard it is to figure out what to do with an idea—and who also knows how rewarding the struggle is. The class will end with an informal reading of students’ work.
