Stuck on a project? Have a great idea, but can't seem to get going? Or are you just feeling paralyzed? In this workshop, we'll play writing games, do some exercises, chat about what we love to see on stage, and you'll gain tools to get you going when you're in a rut. This lab will re-inspire you, and help you put the "play" back in playwriting.
