TH 390 - Playwriting Workshop

This course is a creative writing course, and an exercise in devising a piece of theatre from scratch. It focuses specifically on drama script writing and is dialogue driven. It deals with language holistically – addressing how it is used and what this tells us of the person speaking. The range of skills, abilities and motivations of each individual student is utilized to develop a unique organic piece of work, a short play, written as an ensemble piece. This piece will be given a barely rehearsed reading, informally, for fellow students at the end of the semester, but the student is not assessed on performances delivered.
