Course Description

Starting with the selection of ideas you will go step by step through the processes involved in making a scaled down play for performance.

  • Determining what a short play is and isn't in terms of length and narrative scope.

  • Learning how to examine ideas to find the story in them.

  • Developing an idea into scenes which will then be further developed.

  • Looking at dialogue and trying some writing exercises to strengthen writing skills in this area.

  • When your play is finished, editing techniques can be considered as well as simple production ideas.
