It Happened One Weekend

Instructor: Resident Playwright Will Dunne

This unique, weekend intensive offers step-by-step instinctual writing exercises, group feedback, and actor support to trigger and guide the development of a new short play. Arrive on Saturday morning with absolutely nothing prepared and take a creative leap into the blank page.  By Sunday afternoon, you will have not only written a new play but also seen it performed by professional actors!

Perfect for out-of-town playwrights, this workshop is designed for writers with some playwriting experience or confident beginners. It also offers a boost for those who feel blocked, rusty, or just want a writing change of pace.

Sessions/Weekday 1 Saturday & 1 Sunday
Start/End Date Mar 23 - Mar 24
Time Slot Mar 23, 10:00am - 5:00pm
Mar 24, 1:00pm - 5:00pm
This is an all Tier special topic.
