The Rewrite at Primary Stages

As soon as you finish your last line of dialogue, the need for rewrites begins. Open to new and returning students, this class at Primary Stages ESPA will start by establishing individualized writing goals to conquer over eight weeks. Whether you choose to embark on a rewrite of your entire play or focus on individual scenes, writing exercises and in-class discussion will inspire you to ask new questions of your play, look at it from various angles, and deconstruct it with your fellow writers. As you rewrite, you will hear your pages read aloud in class and engage in a dialogue tailored by your instructor to each writer’s needs. You will leave this class with a stronger version of your play, and with the tools you need to transform any first draft into a polished, compelling work that’s ready to submit.
