Script Analysis Intensive

Ask any playwright what a necessary skill is, and they say, “script analysis.” In this intensive, you will analyze full-length plays to identify decisions characters make and how the consequences of those decisions shape the character, translate subtext, identify differing process, learn to articulate what “The Big Idea” is, plus much more.

Prerequisites: Writing the Full-length 2 or prior playwriting coursework resulting in a full-length play

Sessions/Weekday 4 Wednesdays
Start/End Date Jan 9 - Feb 6 (4 sessions)
Time Slot 6:30pm - 9:30pm

About the Tier 2 Advanced Track

Comprising the Writers Studio’s advanced sequence, students will develop complex characters through actions and consequences, use dramatic language to enhance the world of the play, differentiate between plot and story and how to apply them through the use of time, employ the use of image as a dramatic tool to enrich conflict, and devise dynamic worlds on stage that involve components beyond dialog such as sound, music, movement, media, dance plus other components. Tier 2 culminates in a public reading of a student’s work.
