The Rewrite at Primary Stages

As soon as you finish your last line of dialogue, the need for rewrites begins. This class at Primary Stages ESPA will start by establishing individualized writing goals to conquer over ten 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. 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.

Starts September 18
Sundays from 11:00am – 2:00pm
Instructor: Edwin Sanchez (Writer, Barefoot Boy with Shoes On at Primary Stages)
Eddie’s class is all about being a safe place to try things. One week you may bring in a scene that totally slays, the next week, not so much. But this is the room where you can try. As a playwright, Eddie writes everything (including novels!) and doesn’t ascribe one specific style to his work. He believes that you should dive into whatever you are passionate about, so his class is dedicated to making a commitment to yourself as a writer—to really write and just go for it.
