The Art & Craft of Story Making
Tuesday, November 10 7:00-9:30 pm
State Theatre Classroom
719 Congress Ave.
Austin Script Works is proud to present this Master Class with nationally-renowned playwright Steven Dietz as part of our Dramatis Personae series. The class will focus on the “living play”. Since we know that simply putting words and action onstage does not “activate” a play, what narrative strategies must be employed to bring a theatrical story to life? This class will detail candid and tangible tools of the playwright’s craft that can be used to make a play move and change, push forward, in short: come to life.
Steven Dietz is one of America’s most widely produced playwrights. Since 1983, his 30-plus plays have been regularly produced regionally, off-Broadway and internationally. His latest plays — “Yankee Tavern” and “Becky’s New Car” — will be among the most produced plays at LORT theatres this coming season. Mr. Dietz divides his time between Seattle and Austin– where he is professor of playwriting at UT.
The cost is $25 for ASW members and $40 for non-members. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 454-9727 to reserve a slot.
