VIRTUAL: Writing the 10-Minute Play – G210521V

The art and craft of Playwriting can be learned—especially by observing the Ten-Minute play.  This short form is excellent practice for writing full-length plays as well.  Think of Romeo and Juliet—this play is filled with ten-minute plays, one after the other (R&J meeting at the party, the balcony scene, the marriage, Romeo killing Tybalt, and, of course, the death scene).

Whether you’re painting a potent, ten-minutes of drama/comedy or imagining a fuller piece of theatre, the ten-minute play can be your guide to success.  The class will read, discuss, and write short scenes and ten-minute plays throughout the week.  No pre-knowledge of playwriting is required—both beginners and experienced writers are welcome.

Monday-Friday, May 10-14
2-4:30pm MT (2.5 hours each day / 12.5 hours of total instruction)

This workshop is limited to 10 participants.

Rates:
Suggested: $200
