Teacher: Richard Washer

What you'll learn in this playwriting class:

What does your audience need to know and when do they need to know it? You only have a couple of hours (often less) to tell a story onstage, so there isn’t much time for providing back stories.

In this workshop participants will consider various strategies for managing exposition and look at examples in historical contexts to better understand how to handle this in their own writing.
