Playwriting Studio

Listed in: Theater and Dance, as THDA-61


Connie Congdon (Section 01)


A workshop/seminar for writers who want to complete a full-length play or series of plays. Emphasis will be on bringing a script to a level where it is ready for the stage. Although there will be some exercises in class to continue the honing of playwriting skills and the study of plays by established writers as a means of exploring a wide range of dramatic vocabularies, most of the class time will be spent reading and commenting on the plays of the workshop members as these plays progress from the first draft to a finished draft. Requisite: Theater and Dance 31 or the equivalent. Instructor consent required. Limited to 10 students. Spring semester. Playwright-in-Residence Congdon.
