    Priceless

    By Network Playwright, Barbara McDonald
    Post-Reading Discussion Moderated by Steven Wilson

    Two couples, bound by friendship and blood, get together for dinner one Saturday night.  Unbeknownst to one couple, a hidden agenda is at work, as is a disagreement about whether the agenda should be pursued on this particular night.  Ultimately, what promised to be a pleasant social evening turns sour, as an intense argument breaks out and things are said that cannot be taken back.

    This play was selected as a semi-finalist for the 2017 Eugene O’Neill Theater Center’s National Playwrights Conference. 

    About the First Draft Series

    The First Draft Series is an exclusive series of Tuesday-night play readings for and by Network playwrights. These are private, salon-style readings in which playwrights perform the roles and then discuss the plays in a format similar to that used in the Saturday Series.

    Screenwriting 1.0
    Instructor:
    Resident Playwright Mary Ruth Clarke—Original Screenwriter of Meet the Parents

    Have a story idea you think would make a great Hollywood movie? Or a script you have already begun to write?

    This class offers a boot camp into the realities of how Hollywood thinks about screenplays (although this is not a marketing class). Participants will deep dive into some “Ways In,” to bring their ideas to life, such as unearthing that great hook that will cause a producer to shout, “That’s a movie!”

    There is a particular emphasis on the nature of story, and the class will analyze and map out the classic story structure of a screenplay that went on to be made into an Oscar-winning movie.

    There will be ample time allotted for in-class writing assignments and to discuss participants’ ideas, scenes, and stories. This class is applicable to any movie genre.

    Sessions/Weekday 6 Saturdays

    When They Came 

    By Resident Playwright 

    MT Cozzola 

    Directed by Jeremy Aluma

    In When They Came, the citizens of a typical American town recover from the loss of a group of aliens who had come to them in need of a new home. The citizens defend their actions, interrogate each other, and reveal their deepest hopes and fears as they seek to explain, as a community, how their hospitable intentions resulted in disaster.

    Developing a Play-in-Progress

    Instructor: Douglas Post—Founding Member of the Victory Gardens Playwright Ensemble

    This is a workshop for writers who want to develop a script on which they have already begun work. This may include anything from a full-length play to a one-act play to a series of short plays.  The class will explore the skills and qualities of effective dramatic writing by reading and discussing participants' scripts in a supportive and challenging environment, with the goal being to ready their plays for production.  We will pay particular attention to how your play will be received by producers, directors and literary managers.  We will also pay attention to how it will be received by designers and, most importantly, actors.

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

    Instructor: Resident Playwright Marsha Estell


    Prerequisite: Essentials 1: The Core, Essentials Bootcamp, or permission of instructor.

    The second in our three-class Essentials series, Essentials 2 is about the process rather than the product. You will write a short play every week in order to unleash your creativity and incorporate the core principles taught in Essentials 1 into your writing muscle memory. You will also refine your ability to give and receive notes with your fellow playwrights in a way that helps all of you reach the next level in your development as writers.

    This class will culminate in a public staged reading of students’ short plays, with professional actors and directors, in Chicago Dramatists’ theatre on June 5th at 7:00pm. Students should set aside June 3rd and 4th for rehearsal. 

    For the first day of class, bring in a new 4-page scene with a full arc. This scene must have at least one onstage manifestation of choice that is negotiated over throughout the scene. Make sure you think about the core principles when writing this scene.

    Writing the Political or Social Play
    Instructor: 
    Douglas Post—Founding Member of the Victory Gardens Playwright Ensemble

    This class is specifically designed for writers seeking to sharpen their skills in writing political and social theatre.  We are living through a challenging period and the arts can play a big role in raising issues and rousing communities to take action.  We will start each session by studying scenes by produced playwrights that have spoken to the tenor of their times.  We will then turn our attention to the work of the participants in the room, whether that is a short play, a series of short plays or a full-length work.  At the end of the class, writers will have a better sense of how to write provocative theatre that is powerful and producible.

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

      
    Sessions/Weekday 4 Tuesdays
    Start/End Date July 11 - August 1
    Time Slot 6:30pm - 9:30pm
    Notes Please bring 11 copies of a 10-page play-in-progress to the first session.

This group is meant to provide structure and community to people who are craving to finish and rework their scripts.

    The Trial

    By Jack McLaughlin-Grey
    Post-Reading Discussion Moderator: 
    Resident Playwright, Mary Ruth Clarke

    That four great nations, flushed with victory and stung with injury, stay the hand of vengeance and voluntarily submit their captive enemies to the judgment of the law is one of the most significant tributes that power has ever paid to reason. It happened in Nuremberg in 1945. The confrontation of three legendary individuals: a brilliant villain, a flawed hero, and the manipulative genius who navigated the currents between them.

    Essentials 3: The Journey
    Instructor:
    Resident Playwright Dana Lynn Formby

    Prerequisites: Essentials 1 (or Core Weekend Bootcamp) and Essentials 2.

    Use the core principles of dramatic structure to outline, write, and develop a new full-length play in 10 weeks. This class will kick off with a half-hour, one-on-one meeting with the instructor and then you will bring pages in to the workshop every week. The process will emphasize the play’s journey and structural touch points through writing scenes out of order. Each week you will bring in a piece of the puzzle of your play, resulting in a complete full length at the course’s conclusion. Previous written work will not be allowed.


    Sessions/Weekday 10 Sundays
    Start/End Date July 16 - Sept 17
    Time Slot 1pm - 4pm
    Notes Essentials 1 and Essentials 2 must be taken prior to this course. 

    About the Essentials Track

    The Essentials track is designed to provide playwrights with a solid foundation for their dramatic writing efforts. It consists of three courses:

    • Essentials 1 - The Core
    • Essentials 2 - Strengthening the Core
    • Essentials 3 - The Journey

    Each course is designed to build on its predecessor, thereby providing participants with a holistic view of writing for the stage that will inspire them and elevate their dramatic writing technique.

    Essentials 1 is a prerequisite for Essentials 2, which in turn is a prerequisite for Essentials 3.

    The Blueprint: Building Your Play

    Instructor: Resident Playwright Dana Lynn Formby

    This class breaks structure down to the nuts and bolts of writing, introducing you to tools that will help you turn a blank page into a first draft, and successfully assess it for further revisions. You will learn how to raise the stakes for your characters and how to tell a story with twists and turns. You will learn what you need to do to make a scene work, and follow it through to encompass the complete arc of a story.

    This class will take an in-depth look into the dramatic elements of four plays: Sweat by Lynn Nottage, Take Me Out by Richard Greenberg, Bengal Tiger in the Baghdad Zoo by Rajiv Joseph, and Clean House by Sarah Ruhl. By examining the building blocks of these plays, participants will create outlines and begin work on their own brand-new, full-length plays.

    NOTE: Participants are asked to obtain the plays on their own prior to class.

    Sessions/Weekday 7 Mondays
    Start/End Date July 17 - Aug 28
    Time Slot 6:30pm - 9:30pm
    Notes Participants are asked to obtain the plays on their own prior to class.

    Man of the People

    By Network Playwright, Dolores Diaz
    Post-Reading Discussion Moderator: Adam Webster


    Man of the People tells the story of Dr. John Brinkley, a huckster of the medical profession and radio pioneer who fakes his way to fame, notoriety, and politics until he is brought down by his own ambition. Made famous by his sham cure for male impotence, Dr. Brinkley catapults himself to stardom through his command of American radio and his understanding of human weakness. But Dr. Fishbein, of the newly founded American Medical Association, is determined to expose the lies and put an end to Brinkley’s antics. Despite Fishbein's best efforts, Brinkley escapes justice at every turn until the truth catches up to him.

    This class is designed to offer the writer several new approaches to aggressive dialogue and explores why characters begin talking to each other, what they say, how they say, and where it all leads. Students will be required to complete focused exercises on dialogue techniques that question everything people say (or don't) while offering new tools such as Survival, Surroundings, Blather, Salesmanship, Banter, Evasion, Redirection, and Touchy Topics/Sore Subjects (to cite a few) and insights on various ways to write dialogue.

    Jon Steinhagen is an award-winning playwright, songwriter, and actor whose shows include Blizzard '67, The Teapot Scandals, Successors, Devil's Day Off, and ACES, and the story collection The Big Book of Sounds
