UPCOMING CLASSES:


Strange Ways to Write Plays with Peter Sinn Nachtrieb

Class Description:  Spend a fun and intensive weekend with playwright Peter Sinn Nachtrieb exploring the craft of Playwriting as we collectively explore the various tools the playwright has to create a piece and simultaneously try to bring our more impulsive, intuitive and bizarre creative instincts to the fore. Embracing the “Yes, And” spirit of improvisation, Nachtrieb will guide the group through a series of fun and possibly bizarre exercises exploring a number a different playwriting topics (such as character, language/dialogue, action, scene energy and structure). As we work on craft, we’ll look to see what creative hotspots are emerging within our exercises. In a nutshell, we’ll be exploring different ways how we can write and seeing how that affects what we write about.

Class Time: Saturday, June 1, 2019 from 12:00-5:00 pm, and Sunday, June 2 from 11:00 am – 4:00 pm
