"Scene Shop" Play Development - Thursday Afternoons
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, The Architecture of Story, and Character Scene, and 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 one of the other sections that week. Selected scenes from the spring and summer Scene Shops will be presented in a staged reading showcase in our theatre in fall 2018.

Sessions/Weekday 7 Thursdays
Start/End Date June 28th - August 23rd
Time Slot 1:30 - 4:30 pm
Notes Does not meet 7/5 or 8/2
