New year, new play!

Join acclaimed playwright and two-time Jerome Fellow Jessica Huang for an extended workshop diving deep into the fundamentals of playwriting.  During the course of four 2-hr sessions, participants will learn to identify and practice four foundational elements of playwriting and will walk away having created a compelling piece of theater.

Come with a script you’re struggling with, an idea for something new, or an open mind ready for your next project. Sessions occur once per month, which allows plenty of time to put concepts into practice.

Playwriting Basics is great for the beginner looking to start their first play, the experienced writer seeking a back-to-basics refresher, and everyone in between.
