Playmaking for Writers: Collaboration from Page to Stage
Dramatic writing - for stage, screen or film - is not meant to be read, like a novel or poem - it's meant to be performed. In this class, student writers explore the 'liveness' of dramatic writing in collaboration with actors and directors. Starting with writing exercises that aim at the core concept of 'dramatic action', students progress to self-generated works. Semester ends with public presentation of student work as brought to the stage by the companion section for actors and directors.
