In this intensive class students will work independently and collaboratively to create and develop one-act plays. Class work will include reading, writing, and acting.

Opened to students of all disciplines and ability levels, student-writers will work through a series of writing and acting exercises in order to create dynamic plot, compelling character, and believable dialogue.

By the end of our time together students will have a working draft of a new piece of written theater.
