One Acts/Playwriting

This workshop-style course creates an ongoing opportunity for playwrights to share their work and constructively respond to those of their peers.

Students performing in a one act play.

Through a series of scene-writing exercises, students are introduced to the concepts of dramatic structure and dialogue for the stage. Each student completes a one-act play by the end of the course, and two of those plays -- entirely student-directed and performed -- are chosen to be presented in the spring.
