Rochester Writes: Playwriting Online
What is playwriting? It’s where critical thinking meets imagination, where plumbing meets art, where structure is everything and there’s an audience waiting in real time—so you better get to saying what you want to say before that fly buzzing around the stage lights becomes the only living thing in the theater holding anyone’s attention. Want to learn more? Come join us for this four-part general introduction to the art and craft of playwriting, with discussion and readings to explore dramatic action, character, and what it takes to create a memorable moment in the theater.
This class takes place online via Zoom. It is a weekly four-part series; when registering, please plan on participating in all four sessions. The Zoom link will be emailed to you the day before the first class.
