Playwrighting – Level II

February 7 – March 28, 2015 (8 classes)
Fee: $200.00
Location: Burnell Roberts Room, Metropolitan Arts Center, 126 North Main Street in downtown Dayton
Instructor: Michael M. London

This class is a continuation of the learning in Level I. Although we will still be looking closely at the dramatic structure of the story, we will also focus attention on other aspects of storytelling and the building of a play. There will be a lot of writing, a lot of thinking, some mutual support from other playwrights, a fair amount of laughing, some tasty food at breaks, and a general atmosphere of fun and learning. Each playwright will have a goal of completing a one-act play that will be presented in a public reading. Playwrights will have the opportunity to hear their work read aloud by actors and prepared by directors. Prerequisite: Playwrighting – Level I.
