In this 2-day workshop at Primary Stages ESPA, you will confront your screenplay’s Second Act Problems head-on and explore strategies for developing a problem-proof premise and conflict. With Kate Cortesi (Screenwriter, New Line Cinema), you will take an in-depth look at how to excite your audience with a hero who is challenged along a meaningful journey and proceed through your second act with two principles in mind: how your hero needs to be tested, and how your audience empathizes and delights in the hero’s process.
