Write the story of your life — for the stage!
Writing a script for a solo performance is not the same as writing prose.
How do you dramatize an experience? How do you capture the vernacular of each character? How do you marry a series of disparate scenes from your life (or someone else’s) into a coherent whole?
Join me for this 8-week workshop, and I'll guide you through the process of writing a compelling one-person show.
In this workshop, we will:
- Explore weekly writing exercises
- Brainstorm ideas
- Investigate story structure
- Discuss character
- Investigate your theme
- Learn the tools of dramatizing exposition
- Read your work in every class
- Receive positive constructive feedback
- And much more!
