Inspired by history, and want to breathe new life into old stories on stage? ⁣⁣
Join playwright Jean Tay for this two-part workshop, where you can learn how to translate an idea inspired by historical events, from the page to the stage. Through hands-on exercises, participants will be introduced to the fundamentals of dramatic writing, and learn how to create compelling characters and dramatic scenarios.⁣⁣
This workshop is recommended for writers and those who have basic playwriting experience. Writers may or may not have had their scripts staged before. Participants are encouraged to bring in a story idea that they are inspired by and interested to explore.⁣⁣
