This class is designed to take the mystery out of playwrighting and provide an introduction to new playwrights. The method of building a play is explored through a variety of exercises. Our focus will be on understanding the tool in basic dramatic structure. The process involves a lot of scene writing, a lot of thinking, a lot of laughing, a lot of learning, and a lot of fun.
Each playwright will have the opportunity to create a 10-Minute Play that will be presented in a public reading. The class is planned for novices as well as experienced playwrights and encourages the opportunity for playwrights to hear their works come to life. No Playwrights will be expected to begin the class with already completed work.
Actors and directors are welcome to be part of the process. Class size is limited. Registration and additional information is available on The HRTC website.
The class will be taught by Ohio Playwright, Michael M. London. It will be held on Saturdays at the Caryl D. Philips Creativity Center, 116 N. Jefferson Street, in downtown Dayton.
The class is a project of the Ohio Playwrights Circle and is sponsored by American ArtWorks Foundation. It is hosted in Dayton by The Human Race Theatre Company, and supported by the Marsha Hanna Fund for the Development of New Plays.
