|Additional Requirements and/or Comments: |
Essential aspects of dramatic writing--plot exposition, pacing, one act vs. full length, and the importance of stage action--will be discussed and technical problems inherent in the dramatic form will be considered. A workshop atmosphere will prevail so that students engage in the kind of collaborative approach to problem solving that all dramatic writing requires.
