Storytelling Structure at Primary Stages ESPA

What is it you want to say with that play? What perspective do you bring to the piece to make it uniquely yours? And, most importantly, why are you working on it in the first place? This 6-week seminar forces you to examine all of these questions in order to approach every play with the goal of telling this story right now and for this reason.

By charting the development of the hero and opponent, their manifestation within the physical world, and the moral arguments that explode for the audience by journey’s end, you will develop a scientific vocabulary and collection of tools to examine your plays, with the aim of developing confident, taut work and a strongly articulated vision for a rewrite.

Instructor: Tessa LaNeve (Director of Primary Stages ESPA and Dramaturg of Bright Half Life at Women’s Project)
Wednesdays from 6:30pm – 9:30pm
