Have you always wanted to write and perform a solo show? Does the idea thrill and/or terrify you? Do you feel like you've got a story to tell...but you're not quite sure what it is yet? You're not alone! Come and join me for a fun and lively 6-week introduction to writing your own one-person show where you can share your material in a safe, supportive, and creatively stimulating environment. Through writing exercises, one-on-one discussion and sharing of your material, I will guide you through the process of generating a rough draft of approx. half an hour of material (five-minutes a week) over the course of six-weeks.
Space is limited to four writers.
