Course Homepage: No Homepage Submitted.

Students write short exercises and a short one-act play. Students will start by discovering the idea they wish to develop into a drama. Then they will nurture it through workshops and discussion that ultimately leads to a public, script-in-hand reading with post-performance discussion. Through reading and seeing plays, students will get practical experience in story-telling principles and dramatic structure common to plays, screenplays, and teleplays. Students must be willing to write and rewrite.

Upper-Level Writing

Credits: (3; 2 in the half-term).

Course Homepage: No Homepage Submitted.

In this course, we will write the first act of a full length play, though ambitious students are encouraged to write a draft of a whole play. We will start with an idea, grapple with it, fill it out, focus it, create a theatrical world and develop a narrative throughline. Students will read from their plays in class and the work will be discussed. Writing games will be used to explore character, relationship, action, and to help get through blind spots and blocks. Other assignments will include reading plays, seeing plays, keeping a journal, and meeting regularly with the teacher. At the end of the term we will give staged readings of our work for an audience of friends.
