Instructor: Matthew B. Zrebski

Great plays need to strike hard, fast, and powerfully, never letting an audience off the hook. Exploring multi-act formats, this intensive introduces exciting techniques that help to quickly engage an audience, successfully build to a satisfying climax, and conclude so as to spark dialogue long after the curtain has fallen. By the end of class, students will have a strong outline as well as two to three fully written scenes. They will leave ready and confident to complete a full draft.

This class meets for 5 Saturdays, February 23, March 2, 9, 16 & 23
