Students work together to create a series of 10 minute plays through a variety of writing exercises that examine scene and overall play structure, characters, conflict, events, dialogue, and action. Emphasis is placed on idea generation, creative risk taking, and a thorough process. In classes, playwrights will work on scenes and monologues from both classical and contemporary plays to provide context for their own original work.
(Want to be part of the entire play creation process? Come back for Design/Tech and design the set and/or costumes for your own 10 minute play!)
PGT’s Playwriting Week Special Event is a trip to a Broadway show! This is a great chance for our playwriting students to see a script in its ultimate, fully realized form! (2020 Bway Show TBA)
Final Showcase: a reading of our Playwright’s scripts in PGT’s Jonah Mac Theatre!
