Playwriting

This class will provide students with an expanded experience drafting plays, with additional time taken on understanding the many ways an author crafts a dramatic event, and a deep exploration into the creation of character. The goals are the mastering of playwriting skills and creating compelling, challenging and relevant theatre. Students will compose a 20-minute play which will be read at the end of the week.

The final workshop will consist of the plays written in the class. All finished plays will be automatically entered into the New Jersey Young Playwrights Contest.
