Writing the 10-Minute Play
Instructor: 
Douglas Post—Founding Member of the Victory Gardens Playwright Ensemble

This class is specifically designed for writers seeking to hone their skills in writing ten-minute plays. Contests and festivals for short works are becoming increasingly popular in our theatrical culture and are also a good way for playwrights to get a foot in the door at a variety of institutions. But ten-minute plays demand economy, skill, and craftsmanship. This class will focus on those elements needed to tell our stories in a condensed form. At the end of the session, writers will have acquired a better understanding of how to write a short play that is precise, playable, and has a solid sense of beginning, middle and end.

Writers should bring 11 copies of a 10-page scene from their play to their first session.

  
Sessions/Weekday 7 Saturdays
Start/End Date June 9th - July 21st
Time Slot 1:30 pm - 4:30 pm
Notes Please bring 11 copies of a 10-page play-in-progress to the first session.
