    A Wolf at Every Window
    By Resident Playwright Jon Steinhagen 

    Directed by Drew Martin

    In 1837, the nation is in a financial panic and Chicago becomes a city. Several mismatched people - laborers, thieves, displaced natives, abandoned women - try to establish relationships to each other while building their futures in the muddy, crude community.

    About the Saturday Series

    Every Saturday afternoon at 2:00 PM (except for holiday weekends), Chicago Dramatists hosts a Saturday Series event in our theatre. Most Saturday Series events are public readings of plays-in-progress.

    All plays read in the Saturday Series are directed, rehearsed, and presented with minimal staging. After each reading, the audience members are invited to fill out written response sheets and to join in a moderated post-reading discussion.

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

    Have a play you feel might work well as a movie?  Or a story idea that you can’t seem to make work as a play?

    This weekend workshop offers an intensive, nuts and bolts study of the essentials of writing for film. First we will explore the similarities and differences between the mediums of stage, film, and TV. We will dive deep into how to think and write visually, with less emphasis on dialog and more on action.  There will be a particular focus on the classic story structure of screenplays and why genre is so important, as well as unearthing that great hook that will cause a producer to shout, “That’s a movie!”

    We will tackle the exacting demands of correct screenplay formatting, which often mystifies playwrights; and we'll discuss common mistakes playwrights make when writing for the screen. 

    There will be ample time allotted for in-class writing assignments, as well as time to read and discuss participant’s ideas, scenes, and stories. Participants should come to the first session with a play they want to adapt or an idea they want to cinematically bring to life.

    Sessions/Weekday 1 Saturday/Sunday

    THE HOUSE OF THE NEGRO INSANE
    By Terence Anthony

    The year is 1935 and the Taft State Hospital is one of seven psychiatric facilities in the U.S. built exclusively to care for “insane and idiotic negroes,” where the homeless and downtrodden are housed alongside the criminally insane and diseased. Attius builds coffins at Taft Hospital, where he has been locked up for over a decade, but when two new patients ask him to help them escape Attius dares to dream of a life beyond the hospital walls.

    Instructor: Resident Playwright Dana Lynn Formby

    Essentials Core Weekend Bootcamp is an alternative to Essentials 1 for those who want to learn the core principles in a condensed format. Perfect for out-of-towners or writers who want to advance quickly to Essentials 2.

    In this course, participants learn the core principles of dramatic writing, such as the major dramatic question, conflict, and rising action. Using these tools as a guide, they will write and respond to each others' work.

    By mastering dramatic structure, participants will learn to tell stories that are specifically geared for the theatre—stories that keep audience members on the edge of their seats.

    This class is designed for beginners and for playwrights of all levels of experience who are seeking a foundation for their craft.

    Before class, participants should read Fences, by August Wilson.

    Instructor: Resident Playwright Scott Woldman
    Just as one doesn't become a martial artist by throwing a single kick, comedy writing is a skill that is developed and strengthened through study, exercise, and practice. Participants will work on increasing their comedy writing skills at both the scene and story level in a safe and nurturing environment.

    Through acting and improvisational comedy exercises, writing drills, scene study, performance, and in-class reading of participants’ work by professional actors, writers will develop their skills in a supportive and productive environment. Each session will focus on a different aspect of comedy writing and how to best apply it to each participant’s play.

    Participants can work on a play they have in progress or they can start one in this class.

    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 7:30pm. 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.

    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 10-minute plays. This class will meet for seven sessions, but the last session has not be scheduled yet.

    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 10-minute plays demand economy, skill and craftsmanship. This class will focus on those elements and others 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.

    NOTE: Participants should bring 11 copies of a 10-page play-in-progress to the first session.

    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.

    White Fragility
    by Stephen J. Spencer

    Director TBD

    Tim is a straight cis white male. And that’s the least of his problems. He’s the head of HR and has been tasked with creating a more progressive workplace. As social activist protests grow outside the corporation’s headquarters, Tim desperately tries to navigate modern identity politics without alienating or offending…everyone. WHITE FRAGILITY is a dark comedy about what is truly means to be privileged.

    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 Sundays
    Start/End Date April 23rd- June 11th
    (No class May 7th or May 28th)
    Time Slot 1:30 to 4: 30 pm

    Tilikum
    By Resident Playwright Kristiana Rae Colón     

    On the wet crags of a marine theme park pool, a sprightly orca trainer dangles a treat for her captive killer whale. The dark shadows of his wives, calves, and grandcalves float past the back glass of the stadium pool. Above, in a cramped control booth, the park owner considers the dangerous weight of his investment. TILIKUM, inspired by the CNN documentary BLACKFISH featuring the shocking story of the eponymous whale, is a lyrical investigation of captivity, rebellion, and the savagery of enclosure.

    About the Saturday Series

    Every Saturday afternoon at 2:00 PM (except for holiday weekends), Chicago Dramatists hosts a Saturday Series event in our theatre. Most Saturday Series events are public readings of plays-in-progress.

    All plays read in the Saturday Series are directed, rehearsed, and presented with minimal staging. After each reading, the audience members are invited to fill out written response sheets and to join in a moderated post-reading discussion.

    We hope you will join us for this Saturday Series event!
