Primary Stages: Write a Play in 2 Days

Instructor: Melissa Ross (Writer, Of Good Stock at MTC, Nice Girl at Labyrinth)
Saturday, May 6 and Sunday, May 7
1:00pm – 6:00pm both days

This 2-day writing extravaganza is designed to push you to write an inspired first draft in 48 hours. Sounds crazy, right? But it can be done! The class is specifically focused on using your intuition and liberating you from the trap of overthinking. You will be given exercises by email in the week leading up to the course in order to start planting seeds, and throughout the weekend Melissa will lead you in exercises that will shake up tired assumptions about how to create. Bring in a preliminary idea or simply come in with an open mind, and by Sunday evening you will have—at the very least—the foundation of your next play.
