"Scene Shop" Play Development - Saturday Mornings

Instructor: Resident Playwright Will Dunne

General Price $350


Now in its eleventh year at Chicago Dramatists and run by Will Dunne, author of The Dramatic Writer's Companion and The Architecture of Story, Scene Shop is an ongoing professional resource for experienced playwrights who are currently working on a play or about to begin one. Plays developed in the workshop have received numerous readings, productions, and awards locally and around the country. 

Each weekly session offers a guided script development exercise and the opportunity to hear scene work from home read by professional actors and discussed by the group in a supportive setting. As a result, you don't have to wait until you complete a whole draft of a play to hear your characters off the page and get input from other writers. If you are unable to attend any session, you can always make it up in the other section that week. Selected scenes from the fall and winter Scene Shops will be presented in a staged reading showcase in our theatre in fall 2018.

Start/End Date  April 14th - June 16th
Time Slot 10:00am - 1:00pm
