This voice and text-interactive workshop will talk about getting and developing ideas for a play. Topics include:
- What is a play, exactly?

- Risks associated with certain kinds of ideas and strategies for managing them
- Choosing between ideas
- Taking a premise and building it into a story
- Identifying the protagonist
This 90-minute session will present some concepts of play development and ask the participants to apply to a story they are developing. Breakout sessions will allow participants to share ideas with one or two other participants and get feedback.
