Nationally recognized playwright Caridad Svich, of Salvage Vanguard Theatre’s Fugitive Pieces, Thrush, and Iphigenia Crash Land Falls on the Neon Shell That Was Once Her Heart (a rave fable), guides you through a group and individual writing process to write a fast first draft of a new play in five weeks.
Open yourself to diving into character work and structuring new writing, reading different models and applying them to thinking about live performance using methodology geared toward creative visualization, dreaming, and re-mapping dramaturgical strategies for the stage.
This workshop has garnered more positive feedback than any we’ve offered. Enrollment is limited, so claim your spot today. (Payment plan available – Contact us!)
