Playwriting Basics: Focus on Action with Jessica Huang

  • Z Puppets Rosenschnoz 4054 Chicago Avenue Minneapolis, MN, 55407 United States (map)

Want to:

• create gripping scenes that keep audiences on the edge of their seats?

 • ground your highly theatrical, spectacular magical realism so emotions hit home?

 • communicate back-stories or important themes without sacrificing story?

Acclaimed playwright Jessica Huang returns for a three hour workshop that will help you activate dialogue and plot-points in your scripts so your stories sing on stage. Learn how to transform simple scenes into compelling psychological manipulations, battles of wits, and/or meet-cutes that sizzle with sexual tension. Walk away with the skills you need to provide roadmaps for actors, communicate all that pesky back-story, and give audiences an unforgettable experience.

Part of our Playwriting Basics series, Focus in Action is a workshop for all levels, beginners who need a jump start as well as artists who are looking to sharpen their skills crafting scenes. Perfect for film and theatre makers, sketch writers and puppetry artists who want to take their text to the next level.

Option to attend "virtually" available.
