This online webinar series will unfold in twelve sessions, one session per month, beginning on Sunday night, March 3. 2019. Each class will take place on the first Sunday night of the month through Sunday, February 2, 2020. Classes will begin at 8:00 PM and run until 9:30 PM EST. 

This highly interactive workshop will create a community among PSH playwrights and review key elements of structure and fundamental skills of the playwright in play development. Topics will include:

    • Getting Ideas
    • The Protagonist
    • Old World Order and New World Order (Beginning and Ending the Play)
    • Inciting Incident (Order and Chaos)
    • Major Dramatic Questions
    • Plotting
    • Crisis, Climax, Resolution
    • Rewrites
    • Getting the Work Out

Participants will be expected to read three plays which will be used as the basic texts and see plays throughout the workshop.   Learning pairs will be created allowing writers to work with a partner as they develop their own work. Writing will NOT be presented in class, but the participants will have the chance to reflect on the writing they are doing as it relates to key topics.  Bridge assignments will provide continuity from one session to the next.

This class is recommended for beginning / new playwrights and more experienced playwrights who want to “brush up” on the fundamentals and participate in a learning community.

Enroll in all 12 sessions for a one-time fee of $349.

Enrollment will be capped at 30 participants; a variety of learning strategies will be employed to keep the participants fully engaged during class sessions.
