For the serious and budding dramatist, Playwrights Workshop offers an opportunity to cultivate your unique voice while digging deep into the fundamentals of writing for the stage. This intensive-style class will be host to quick-fire writing exercises, interactive lectures, and peer-feedback-driven workshop sessions. In workshops, students will read out loud each others work and develop a vocabulary for meaningful feedback. Over the course of the year, students will focus on the development of two ten minute plays and a one act play.
This course will culminate in The ANMS Playwrights’ Festival in the spring, where professional Boston actors will present the students work in a staged reading open to friends and family.
