|Examination and Assignments: |
Open-ended playwriting exercises--designed to facilitate the discovery of dramatic material--will form the bulk of the work. Each student will be expected to have a play written by the end of the semester.
|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.
Students interested in taking the class are required to submit a sample of their writing for evaluation. This will be a weekly three-hour workshop (1:00-4:00).
