Playwrights learn about craft from t-shirt slogan
Dramatis Personae Workshop with Jennifer Haley

$100 ASW members; $150 non-members

Life is short, so eat dessert first.

It’s a t-shirt slogan. It’s a darn good idea. Moreover, it’s a workshop offered by Austin Script Works as part of their ongoing Dramatis Personae series. Intimate, extraordinary classes taught by some of the nation’s most innovative playwrights.

In this 3-week workshop with former Austinite (and recent Brown University MFA) Jennifer Haley, you’ll get the playwriting equivalent of relishing the last course.

Why is it challenging to write the end of a play? Does the end of the action have to be the chronological end of the story? If the end is the last bite, what does it say about the entire meal? Explore your process and investigate new narrative structures in an open, creative, invigorating class.

Jennifer Haley is a playwright and performer from Austin, Texas. She has worked with a variety of theater companies around the United States, including Refraction Arts/Blue Theatre in Austin, The Empty Space and Annex Theatre in Seattle, Perishable Theatre in Providence, Women’s Theatre Initiative in Cincinnati, and Stark Raving Theatre in Portland, Oregon. She recently received her MFA from the graduate playwriting program at Brown University, where she was awarded the Weston Award for Drama and the Joelson Prize for Creative Writing.
