Playwriting for Teens:
Writing the One Page Play

3 Day Intensive 4:30pm – 6:00pm CST
Dec 02 – Dec 16
Instructor: Cassandra Rose

In this playwriting class geared towards high schoolers, learn how to write a full play in one page. And then do it again. And again. And again. At the end of the course writers will each have 3 brand new plays, freshly written. At the end of the class, they will get to see their best work read by professional Chicago actors! Perfect for both young writers that have never written a play before and for those that have written quite a few.

This class is ideal for teenage students.
