You will have demonstrated a commitment to the art and craft of playwriting, possess a thorough grasp in practical terms of the vocabulary and technical skills presented in Playwriting 1, and be able to engage with and support your fellow artists with lively and generous discussion. You are ready to embark on longer plays with multiple characters. These plays are guided from the creative impulse of the first draft to clarifying, exploring and shaping the second. You are ready to embrace and delve more deeply into the challenges of the revision, sacrificing favorite lines and notions to dramaturgical momentum, as mastery of the rewrite becomes a thrilling and joyful venture.
Participants in Julie McKee’s Fall 2018 class may be selected to have work developed and shown in collaboration with a director as part of Pat Golden‘s Director’s New Play Lab. Decisions regarding assignment and selection of the End-of-Term Projects are at the discretion of instructors, based on the merit of the work in class, and are by no means guaranteed. Presentations will take place at 7PM on Saturday & Sunday, November 10 & 11, in the HB Playwrights Theatre.
